The GA-networking group on Medicinal Plants and Natural Products in Animal Healthcare and Veterinary Medicine is invited to organize again a one-day Pre-Congress Symposium. To bring together practitioners, scientists, students and industry in our field is the idea of our networking group and in particular of the symposium.
After just a year of break, we have the great chance to meet in the central part of Europe this time.
As usual the Symposium will cover following themes:
- animal self-medication
- ethnoveterinary medicine
- veterinary pharmacology of medicinal plants
- science and practice of veterinary phytotherapy
- clinical, in vivo and in vitro research with medicinal plants or natural products for animals
- feed additives and animal health care products based on plants rich in phytochemicals
The program will include keynote lectures, invited short lectures, as well as contributed short lectures. The animal related contributions of the main congress will be presented as posters during the Pre-Congress Symposium. An international industrial exhibition with companies presenting herbal feed additives, veterinary drugs and phytogenic health care products for animals will be held. A broad professional, scientific and personal exchange will be possible during the breaks.
The 5th edition of the African Research Workshop will take place in Kraków, Poland on 13th July 2024, prior to the International Congress on Natural Products Research 72nd International Congress and Annual Meeting of the Society for Medicinal Plant and Natural Product Research (GA).
What to expect:
The workshop is a unique opportunity to exchange scientific findings about natural products research conducted on Traditional African Medicine.
African researchers can present their research findings in short talks during the on-site event and discuss the findings with colleagues and peers. See instructions on how to submit an abstract to present your research below.
A Keynote Lecture is presented by Prof. David Katerere (Tshwane University of Technology, Dept of Pharmaceutical Science, South Africa).
How to submit an abstract:
Please submit your abstract for a short talk (12 min) via the general abstract submission portal. Research topics should focus on Traditional African Medicine in the areas:
Contributions should focus on natural products research of Traditional African
Medicine in the areas:
• Clinical research
• Pharmacological and toxicological mechanisms
Contributions reporting clinical research conducted on African natural products are
Please note: The abstracts submitted to the African Research Workshop will not be part of the general abstract evaluation (posters or oral presentation) for the main conference and thus not be published in the Phytochemistry Letters Special Conference Issue. If you want to present a poster or short lecture during the main conference, please submit it
Botanical Safety Consortium
This course will offer a deep dive into the world of botanical safety, bridging the gap
between their traditional uses and modern applications in supplements, medicines, and
cosmetics. Instructors are global experts in the field of toxicology, botanical safety, and
The interactive course will cover fundamental topics in toxicology relevant for botanicals,
The course will culminate in several interactive small group case studies focused on real-
world challenges within the botanical safety space that will allow participants to directly
apply the knowledge from the course.
