On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing Committees, it is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the PSE e-Congress “Plant Derived Natural Products as Pharmacological and Nutraceutical Tools”. The COVID-19 pandemia forced all of us to change our professional and social life. In times for which the Phytochemical Society of Europe decided to cancel the face-to-face events for 2020, we proposed the idea of the organization of this virtual congress. Such an event does not intend to replace the conferences of the Society planned for the current year in Crete, Bari, and Piatra Neamt, but has the scope to get in close touch the PSE scientific community, although only virtually.
We do hope that all the meetings expected in 2020 will be postponed to the next year and will be the occasion to meet all our Colleagues and friends again.
The e-Congress “Plant Derived Natural Products as Pharmacological and Nutraceutical Tools” will represent a very stimulating meeting and an unequalled opportunity for the numerous scientists dealing with phytochemical issues in all their domains to get together. The program will cover the most appealing and relevant topics of research in Phytochemistry, Pharmacology and Phytotherapy, Traditional Medicine, Nutraceutical, and closely related disciplines.
The e-Congress program will include Plenary Lectures and Oral Communications presented in live discussion sections (the dedicated web-platform will be communicated later), while Poster Communications will be charged into this website and be disposable for all participants. All registered participants will receive the personal access code to get into the e-Congress platform and to view the e-posters.
We look forward to welcome as many of you as possible to our virtual congress. We can take advantage of this situation to live a unique experience, while hoping in the mean time to hug and shake our hands again in the immediate future.
Francesco Epifano – Salvatore Genovese – Serena Fiorito
