    Update time: 2014-05-19
    Text Size: A A A

    The International Symposium on Edible Plant Resources and the Bioactive Ingredients, which is supported and launched by Central Asian Center of Drug Discovery and Development of Chinese Academy of Sciences, is held every two years. It is faced to scientists who study on edible plant resources in the world. The 4th International Symposium on Edible Plant Resources and the Bioactive Ingredients (ISEPR2014) will be held on July 25th to 27th, 2014, in Pamir, Tajikistan. The goal of ISEPR2014 is to provide an opportunity to exchange the achievements in the studies on resources, cultivations, chemical constituents, bioactivities and medical applications of edible plants, to discuss the hot points and the core problems in the relevant fields, and to foresee the prospect in basic researches andtechnologies. The latest developments in this field home and abroad are expected to promote scientific exchanges, cooperation and communications among the scientists around the world.  

    ISEPR2014  is hosted by   Academy of Sciences of Republic of Tajikistan and Central Asian Center of Drug Discovery & Development of Chinese Academy of Sciences, and organized by Pamir Biologically institute  of Academy of Sciences of Republic of Tajikistan, Xinjiang Technical Institute of Physics & Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Research & Development Center of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and Innovation Center of Biology and Medicine of Academy of Sciences of Republic of Tajikistan. The Symposium will invite many famous scholars domestic and overseas to give special speeches on investigations and applications on edible plants, and many medical and health care company entrepreneur, scientific researchers will join the symposium to give lectures.
