Shanghai , the largest city in China , is situated on the bank of the Yangtze River Delta. It serves also as one of the most important cultural, commercial, financial, industrial and communication centers of China. Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica (SIMM), Chinese Academy of Sciences, set up in 1932, is one of the leading institutions in drug discovery research in China.
We believe the IUPAC symposium will be an important and meaningful event, bringing together scientists from all over the world and contributing to a better understanding of natural products themselves, the role of natural products in drug discovery, as well as protection of our environment and many other important applications.
We look forward to welcoming you to Shanghai in October 2014!
