I Bio.Natural – Bioactive Natural Products Research Meeting

I Bio.Natural – Bioactive Natural Products Research Meeting
September 27-28 2019



On behalf of the Organizing Committee for the I Bio.Natural Meeting, we are pleased to invite you to the I Bio.Natural – Bioactive Natural Products Research Meeting, that will be held in Lisbon, on September 27-28 (Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias; Auditório Agostinho da Silva).

Bio.Natural Meeting aims to be a forum for researchers that are developing projects exploring the multiple applications offered by natural products. These compounds are being screened as new ‘drug lead’ on drug discovery, or being modified by rational drug design and semi-synthesis, in order to offer innovative therapeutic alternatives for the treatment of cancer, infectious diseases or other health problems. Other studies are focused on the potential of marine, herbal, or mineral materials as bioactive agents for cosmetics or medical devices. Moreover, the proven benefits of nutrients from naturally sourced ingredients are demanding new approaches for research on food and food supplements for human nutrition.


The Scientific Topics are:

– Natural Products in Drug Discovery

– Natural Products Chemistry

– Bioactivity of Natural Products

– Marine Natural Products

– Natural Cosmetics

– Functional foods and food supplements

– Other fields related to Natural Products
