The driving force behind the organization of the ICCA meetings has been the continued need for a conference that focuses on bioactive substances derived from microogranisms and other natural sources.

We will keep with past traditions by maintaining an interdisciplinary program that will highlight research efforts in natural products isolation, structural determination, synthesis and biological evaluation.  In addition, ICCA will feature new research directions and methods for drug development that have developed as a result of studying natural products and their modes of biological action.

The conference will provide an environment that will serve to promote collaboration among scientists carrying out cutting edge research in both industry and academia. These collaborations will help in the discovery, synthesis, and development of new bioactive compounds.
