eNordic Natural Products Conference 2021
You can still register for the conference, registration below.
There will be more than 25 oral presentations and keynote lectures. Poster contributions are still welcome!
The Nordic Natural Products Conference (NNPC) has a history back to 1961, when the first conference was held in Bornholm, Denmark. At that time, the conference was named Nordic Natural Product Chemistry Symposia. Since 2005, the meeting has been arranged every second year in one of the Nordic countries, and the last time the conference was held in Norway was in 2011. In 2021, the first virtual NNPC will be held due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but hopefully we will meet again in person in 2023 in Finland. Even if the 2021 conference will be digital, we will enjoy coffee breaks in a relaxed Nordic atmosphere.
The Nordic Natural Products Conference aims to strengthen the Nordic scientific collaboration in the field of natural product chemistry, pharmacognosy and closely related disciplines. The topics of 2021 cover the broad interdisciplinary fields of natural product research and we invite you to submit an abstract to contribute to an exciting scientific program this year. The scientific program includes plenary lectures from keynote speakers that will increase our knowledge and discuss exciting developments of natural product research.

Professor Christian Zidorn is head of the Department of Pharmaceutical Biology of Kiel University, Germany. Christian Zidorn's research is focused on bioactive plant natural products, chemophenetics, chemical ecology, and marine natural products. Current research focuses on chemophenetics of the Cichorieae (Asteraceae), on bio-actives from vegetables, on altitudinal and seasonal variation of natural products, and on marine natural products from seagrasses, their bioactivities and ecological functions
