Welcome to 14th International Congress of Ethnopharmacology ISE 2014!!

The International Society for Ethnopharmacology is a collaborative, interdisciplinary group of scientists - anthropologists, pharmacists, pharmacologists, ethnobotanists, phytochemists, and others - all fascinated by the study of the local and global use of traditional medicines: the medicinal use of plants, the cultural and pharmacological dimensions of human medicinal plant use.

The 14th International Congress of the Society for Ethnopharmacology will be organized in collaboration with the Sociedad Latinoamericana de Fitoquímica, and will be hosted in Puerto Varas, Chile, from September 23 – 26th, 2014.

The research topics presented in plenary and keynote lectures will in particular deal with the topics of analytical methods in phytochemical analysis, bioactivity and mechanisms of action of natural and synthetic compounds, bioprospecting, ethnobotany, metabolomics and food plants, nature-based design of bioactive compounds, phytochemistry and Chemosystematics, synthesis of bioactive compounds, traditional medicines. Presentations from this and other areas of ethnopharmacology will be accepted as short lectures and posters. On behalf of the Scientific and the Organizing Committees, I cordially invite you to participate in this extraordinary international conference.
