3rd International Conference of the Marine Fungal Natural Products

Fungi constitute an important proportion of marine microbiota. Marine fungi are a renewable and outstanding source for new bioactive natural products that can contribute significantly to the well-being of the society. However, their potential in many areas has largely remained untapped.

The Marine Natural Products Team, which is part of the Institute of Chemistry of Nice at the University Côte d’Azur (France) cordially invites you to the 3rd International Conference of the Marine Fungal Natural Products (MaFNaP) that will be held online from July 19 to 22, 2021. This event will gather an international audience to discuss new developments and approaches within the field, enhance awareness on marine fungi as a sustainable resource for blue biotechnology and highlight the potential of marine fungal metabolites in various areas. It also serves as a forum for networking and promotion of young scientists working in the field.

Abstracts will be considered for short talks or poster presentation. Selected posters will also be given the opportunity to be presented during short flash presentations.

A Month of ASP

Vanguards of Natural Product Research 2021

July 16th, 23rd and 30th

This summer, the ASP will be hosting a virtual symposium series during the month of July entitled “Vanguards of Natural Product Research 2021,” which will highlight the work and creativity of students and postdocs in the natural products community. The symposium dates are planned during the mornings (ET) of July 16th, 23rd, and 30th; events will include podium talks, poster presentations, as well as meet-and-greet sessions for all participants. The symposium will use Virtual Chair a virtual meeting platform that will allow participants to freely navigate to throughout the conference hall, browse posters, and communicate with each other in one-on-one and small group sessions. The Abstract submission deadline has been extended to June 1st.  Whether you are new to the field or a seasoned veteran, we hope you will join us to meet the students and postdocs who are on the frontlines of natural products and learn about the cutting edge research being carried out around the world.
