Natural products research in Australia

22. March, 2024, 10.00 a.m. – 12.00 a.m. (CET), Online, free of charge

Australia stands as a beacon of biodiversity, boasting 70% of the world’s diverse array of life forms. Isolated from other landmasses, its evolution has taken a singular path, fostering a remarkable level of endemism. Beyond its famed inhabitants like the koala (Phascolarctos cinereus), Australia teems with a rich tapestry of plant life, insects, and microorganisms. The Great Barrier Reef, a jewel in Australia’s natural crown, thrives as one of Earth’s most biodiverse ecosystems. Moreover, Australia’s botanical treasures have long served as wellsprings of medicinal discovery since ancient times. Against this backdrop, the exploration of Australia’s natural product chemistry enjoys a storied legacy. Join us in this GA-organized eSeminar for a rare glimpse into the pioneering work of three esteemed researchers, delving into the intricate chemistry shaped by millions of years of evolutionary refinement.
