Oxford is again the destination for scientists and other visitors from around the world gathering to discuss the ancient, yet rapidly evolving, study of botanical medicines.
The 19th annual International Conference on the Science of Botanicals is set for April 8-11 at the Oxford Conference Center. The National Center for Natural Products Research at the University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy organizes and hosts the conference.
More than 250 people from universities, government and business institutions attend the conference to learn about advances in technology and research that can benefit their organizations.
Besides promoting the sharing of knowledge among the world’s medicinal plants experts, the conference is designed to promote rapport and collaboration. As part of this camaraderie, attendees eat dinner as a group each evening, sample international food and have a picnic one afternoon, complete with competitive field games and entertainment.
