Welcome to the upcoming 53rd annual meeting of the Phytochemical Society of North America (PSNA)! This meeting will be held on August 9th to 13th, 2014, at the McKimmon Center on the campus of North Carolina State University, Raleigh, USA. As you know, there is nothing without "Phytochemicals". This meeting will gather scientists from all phytochemicals-related disciplines to share their research successes. The PSNA annual meeting is a perfect gathering for you and other scientists - from young students to seniors - in the areas of medicinal chemistry, biosynthesis, metabolic engineering, agriculture, pathogen, metabolomics, genomics, metabolomics, systems biology, synthetic biology, medicinal plants and so on. Your attendance is essential to strengthen the PSNA and research in understanding phytochemicals-the gifts of Mother Nature. Please mark your calendar to come home to meet your old friends and make new friends.
For those who've never before had the opportunity to visit the Raleigh area, North Carolina has much to offer - from beautiful beaches to snow-capped mountains, historic attractions to the Research Triangle. North Carolina's special "barbecue" served with southern hospitality will make this region one of your favorites. Research Triangle Park (RTP), where "Taxol" and "Camptothecin" were discovered, is a dream location for scientists in different disciplines.
Register now for the 53rd annual meeting of the PSNA now! We look forward to seeing you at North Carolina State University!
