Recent Advances on the Synthesis of Bioactive Natural Metabolites

The São Paulo Research Foundation, FAPESP, within the scope of the BIOTA FAPESP Program invites you to the international symposium

Recent Advances on the Synthesis of Bioactive Natural Metabolites

The latest advances in research in organic synthesis of bioactive molecules will be discussed. Presenters will debate the relevance and future possibilities for research in organic synthesis, in order to diversify and strengthen its development in Brazil. Topics include also organic synthesis of bioactive molecules of natural origin and related areas in Brazil, promoting collaborations between scientists in Brazil and colleagues in foreign institutions.
