Welcome Letter

Dear friends and colleagues,

On behalf of the International Society for Ethnopharmacology (ISE) it is a special privilege and a pleasure to invite you to the 20th International Congress of International Society for Ethnopharmacology (ISE), which will be held from April 18th – 20th, 2021 on a Virtual Congress Platform.
Greece, that was to host the physical Congress, is one of the most influential cultures in European and Mediterranean area. Through the emblematic figures of Hippocrates, Dioscorides and later on, with the Byzantine physicians, Greece has deeply influenced the European Traditional Medicine and has left a legacy which is traced down today in modern Pharmacopoeias. A common feature of this rich heritage of traditional medicine, which covers three millennia, is the wealth of the Greek Flora, endowed with more than 6500 plant species and still under exploration.
We believe that ISE 2021 will bring together renowned scientists from all over the world and we invite you to participate actively in this exciting event. The congress aims to increase our knowledge on traditional medicinal products the influence of herbal medicinal products in the Pharmacopoeias and the role of natural products in drug discovery, nutrition and applied chemistry. The scientific program of the main conference includes plenary lectures and invited short lectures, contributed short lectures and posters.
On behalf of the Universities of Thessaloniki, Athens and Patras and the Hellenic Society of Ethnopharmacology,
We welcome you to the ISE 2021 Virtual Congress and wish you a fruitful meeting!
