The drug discovery process accelerates the design of new leads for various life threatening diseases and combinatorial chemistry has been an integral part of drug discovery process. Natural medicines still play a major role not only as a template for the drug discovery but also offers holistic approach for better management of various diseases. Combining the principles of natural medicines with refined modern chemical technology can help in the development of more economical, environmental friendly and effective drug discovery process. The incorporation of traditional and contemporary evidence based medicine as integral parts of a country’s formal health care system is most likely to be achieved in many Asian countries such as China, Japan, Korea, and India. Successful Integration can only be possible with each being separately recognized as legitimate forms of health care within the same framework and by the combined effort of public and government sector is essential for the promotion of natural medicines.

This 3rd National conference on “Integrating Natural and Modern Medicines in Drug Discovery and Development” will provide an open forum for the academicians, researchers, physicians and professionals of pharmaceutical field to enrich their knowledge about the cutting edge advances and research related to drug discovery & modern drug development by integration of principles of natural and modern medicines for better management of various diseases.

The conference features plenary sessions, which will be delivered by distinguished speakers from different disciplines of pharmaceutical field and allied sciences. In addition, there will be invited lectures delivered by young researchers in their respective fields and panel discussion in various technical sessions. The conference will also provide an opportunity to students and research scholars to interact with eminent and renowned scientists and present their innovative ideas and valuable research by means of poster presentations.
