13th International Congress of the Society for Ethnopharmacology
in collaboration with the
Society for Medicinal Plant and Natural Product Researchand
Eurasia Pacific Uninet
September 2 - 6, 2012
The International Society for Ethnopharmacology is a collaborative, interdisciplinary group of scientists - anthropologists, pharmacists, pharmacologists, ethnobotanists, phytochemists, and others - all fascinated by the study of the local and global use of traditional medicines.
The 13th International Congress of the Society for Ethnopharmacology will be organized in collaboration with the Society for Medicinal Plant and Natural Product Research and Eurasia-Pacific Uninet, and will be hosted by University of Graz, Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, in Graz/Austria from September 2 - 6, 2012.
Traditional medicinal knowledge has been transferred over the centuries and also over wide distances, and develops into globalised herbal medicine. In this congress we want to focus in particular on the intercultural aspects of herbal medicine and its relevance in modern societies. As an example, we want to discuss the relevance of the Silk Road for the exchange of medicinal plants and medicinal knowledge between east and west.
The research topics presented in plenary and keynote lectures will in particular deal with a holistic approach and the application of systems biology in medicinal plant research. Special emphasis will be on traditional and modern herbal medicinal products in ageing related and infectious diseases. However, presentations from other areas of ethnopharmacology will also be accepted as short lectures and posters.
The Scientific and the Organizing Committees cordially invite you to participate in this extraordinary international conference. We will take care of a perfect meeting atmosphere and a nice stay in the charming city of Graz.
