13th Annual Oxford International Conference on the Science of Botanicals
This conference is supported by a cooperative agreement between the NCNPR and the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It is co-sponsored by the Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica/CAS, China; the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR - India); the Ministry of Indigenous Medicine; Sri Lanka; the American Society of Pharmacognosy (ASP); the Society for Medicinal Plant Research (GA); and the Korean Society of Pharmacognosy.
The function of the ICSB is to review, discuss, and explore the confluence of current research topics in natural product chemistry, pharmacognosy and botanicals. Topic areas will include authentication of botanical identity, cultivation, collection, post-harvest practices for producing quality plant materials, as well as an exploration of chemical and toxicological methods regarding botanical quality/safety assessments.
The info for the 12th Annual ICSB has been moved to our Past Conferences page, and all the currently available presentations can be downloaded in PDF format from the 12th Agenda page. We will be adding more presentations to that page as we recieve permission from the authors to publish them.

Thank you, one and all, for your continued participation and support.
