Track 1: Natural Products        

Natural products are naturally occurring substances that are used to restore or maintain good health. They are often made from plants, animals, microorganisms and marine sources. They come in a wide variety of forms like tablets, capsules, tinctures, solutions, creams, ointments and drops. Natural products are used and marketed for a number of health reasons, like the prevention or treatment of an illness or condition, the reduction of health risks, or the maintenance of good health. They must be safe to be used as over-the-counter products. Products needing a prescription are regulated as drugs. Natural Products are used for various purposes like skin and hair care, dietary supplement, baby care, organic and natural herbal products.

Track 2: Novel Sources and Approaches to Natural Products

Natural products (secondary metabolites) have been the most successful source of leads for potential drug discovery. Natural products have been well documented for their medicinal uses for thousands of years. Plants have evolved and adapted over millions of years to withstand bacteria, insects, fungi and weather to produce unique, structurally diverse secondary metabolites. Their ethnopharmacological properties have been used as a primary source of medicines for early drug discovery. Macro and micro fungi have been part of human life for thousands of years. They were used as food (mushrooms), in preparation of alcoholic beverages (yeasts), medication in traditional medicine and for cultural purposes.

Track 3: Methodologies for Natural Products

The investigation of biological and chemical properties of natural products for the past two centuries has not only produced drugs for the treatment of several diseases, but has instigated the development of synthetic organic chemistry and the arrival of medicinal chemistry as a major route to discover efficacious and novel therapeutic agents. Structural alteration of natural compounds or synthesis of novel compounds, based on designs following a natural compound scaffolding, have offered us a lot of vital new drugs in the fields of medicine, agriculture, and food spheres. Nature has provided a fascinating array of chemical structures in the form of bioactive secondary metabolites.

Track 4: Natural Products Drug Discovery

Classical natural product chemistry methodologies enabled a vast array of bioactive secondary metabolites from terrestrial and marine sources to be discovered. Many of these natural products have gone on to become current drug candidates. An advance in technology and sensitive instrumentation for the rapid identification of novel bioactive natural products and structure elucidation continues to improve the natural product discovery process. Chemistry has indeed revolutionized the development of novel active chemical leads resulting in the synthesis of structural analogues. Natural products constitute a key source of pharmacologically active ingredients in a variety of novel agents with therapeutic potential in a wide range of diseases. Pharmaceuticals containing natural products or compounds derived from natural product scaffolds or templates have to undergo the same stringent approval process as drugs obtained from purely synthetic origin.

Track 5: Phytomedicine and Phytochemistry

The pharmaceutical industry’s interest in natural products diminished with the advent of such promising new technologies like combinatorial chemistry (CC) and high throughput screening (HTS). The prospect of such disciplines, aimed at accelerating drug discovery efforts, led some companies to dismiss their natural product programs. Combinatorial chemistry employs parallel synthesis techniques allowing the creation of libraries containing hundreds of thousands of compounds, whereas HTS allows rapid testing of large numbers of compounds. A significant number of drugs have been derived from plants that were traditionally employed in ethnomedicine or ethnobotany (the use of plants by humans as medicine as in Ayurvedic or Traditional Chinese Medicine), while others were discovered initially (through random screening of plant extracts in animals) or later, by determining their in vitro activity against HIV or cancer cell lines.

Track 6: Natural Products as Tool

The valuable medicinal properties of different plants are due to presence of several constituents i.e. saponines, tannins, alkaloids, alkenyl phenols, glycoalkaloids, flavonoids, sesquiterpenes lactones, terpenoids and phorbol esters. Among them some are act as synergistic and enhance the bioactivity of other compounds. Natural products (and conventional medicines) offer great anticipation in the identification of bioactive compounds and their development into drugs for the treatment of inflammatory diseases. Previously, the plant medicines were dispensed in the form of crude drugs like tinctures, teas, powders, poultices, and other herbal preparations. This eventually serves as the basis of the current modern drug discovery.

Track 7: Natural products as Anti-Cancer Drugs

Dietary sources of natural products are assumed to have anti-cancer benefits include fruits, vegetables and spices yielding biologically active components such as curcumin, resveratrol, cucurbitacins, isoflavones, saponins, phytosterols, lycopene, and many others. A number of these are gaining importance as adjuvant anti-cancer agents with curcumin, resveratrol and cucurbitacins having activity reported against cancer stem cells.  39 natural compounds from marine species, mostly invertebrates, and 10 from microorganisms, mostly from bacteria of the Streptomyces genus, as potential new anti-cancer agents. It is assumed that many prokaryotic and eukaryotic natural product sources may still reveal a number of valuable anti-cancer compounds in the future and even ancient animal species have been suggested as a particularly valuable source.

Track 8: MarineThe Ultimate Source of Bioactives and Drug Metabolites

Many marine natural products appear to arise from multi-functional enzymes that are also present in terrestrial systems, exhibiting a cross phylum activity with terrestrial biota. However, a large number of marine derived compounds also possess a substantial amount of functional groups, which were not previously described from terrestrial metabolites. They range from derivatives of amino acids and nucleosides to macrolides, porphyrins, terpenoids, aliphatic cyclic peroxides, and sterols. Microorganisms (amongst them mostly bacteria and fungi) have played an important role in providing new structures, like antibiotics for drug discovery and development. The terrestrial microbial populations are immensely diverse which is also reflected in the number of compounds and metabolites isolated from these microorganisms. Besides bacteria, marine fungi and deep-sea hydrothermal vent microorganisms are reported to produce bioactive compounds and metabolites.

Track 9: Marine Biotechnology

Marine (or blue) biotechnology encompasses the applications of biotechnology tools on marine resources. Marine biotechnology encompasses those efforts that involve the marine resources of the world, either as the source or target of biotechnology applications. Marine biotechnology may include techniques such as bioprocessing, bioharvesting, bioprospecting, bioremediation, using bioreactors etc (so called process biotechnology techniques); aquaculture/fisheries; gene, protein, or other molecule based techniques; while applications may include: health, food, cosmetology, aquaculture & agriculture, fisheries, manufacturing, environmental remediation, biofilms and corrosion, biomaterials, research tools etc. Therefore, marine biotechnology has a horizontal scope encompassing very different applications, for all of which the marine environment is providing the resources.

Track 10: Marine Natural Products in Drug Discovery

Drug discovery represents one of the most promising and highly visible outcomes of marine biotechnology research. Biochemicals produced by marine invertebrates, algae and bacteria, are very different than those from related terrestrial organisms and thus offer great potential as new classes of medicines. To date, examples of marine-derived drugs include antibiotics from fungi, two closely related compounds from a sponge that treat cancer and the herpes virus, and a neurotoxin from a snail that has painkiller properties making it 10,000 times more potent than morphine without the side effects. However, there are several more marine-derived compounds currently in clinical trials and it is likely that many more will advance to the clinic as more scientists look to the sea for these biotechnological uses. In addition to new medicines, other uses for marine-derived compounds include: cosmetics (algae, crustacean and sea fan compounds), nutritional supplements (algae and fish compounds), artificial bone (corals), and industrial applications (fluorescent compounds from jellyfish, novel glues from mussels, and heat resistant enzymes from deep-sea bacteria).

Track 11: Development of Marine Drugs and Natural Products

Natural products are believed to have the advantage of having enormous structural and chemical diversity, increased protein binding characteristics (due to complex structure) and specific biological activity. Also these serve as good lead compounds suitable for further modification. Bioactive compounds from marine flora and fauna have extensive past and present use in the treatment of many diseases and serve as compounds of interest both in their natural form and as templates for synthetic modification. Several molecules isolated from various marine organisms (microorganisms, algae, fungi, invertebrates, and vertebrates) are currently under study at an advanced stage of clinical trials, some of them have already been marketed as drugs.

Track 12: Biologically Active Natural Products and Drugs

Natural Products are the source of numerous pharmaceutical and agrochemicals agents, and it is reasonable to believe that there are additional agents in existence that remain undiscovered. These natural products are probably defence chemicals targeting and inhibiting the cell division processes of invading plant pathogens. The biofuels produced from the renewable resources could help to minimize the fossil fuel burning and CO2 production. Biofuel produced from biomass such as plants or organic waste could help to reduce both the world’s dependence on oil and CO2 production. These biofuels have the potential to cut CO2 emission because the plants they are made from use CO2 as they grow. Biofuels and bioproducts produced from plant biomass would mitigate global warming. This may due to the CO2 released in burning equals the CO2 tied up by the plant during photosynthesis and thus does not increase the net CO2 in the atmosphere.

Track 13: Bioactive Natural Products from Marine Bacteria

Marine bacteria have been proven to be a profound resource on the development of natural product chemistry and upon the medical sciences. The improvement of natural products-based screening, rather than relying on synthetic sources, has been the aim of current pharmaceutical research and development. Alternative strategies to consider include the identification of potential new antibiotics from commercial crude bacterial fermentations. Recent research progresses reported that many bioactive natural products from marine invertebrates have striking similarities to metabolites of their associated microorganisms including bacteria. Compared with terrestrial organisms, the secondary metabolites produced by marine organisms have more novel and unique structures owing to the complex living circumstance and diversity of species, and the bioactivities are much stronger. The study of marine bacteria and their potential role in the production of metabolites is becoming a new topic for research. Several investigations have supplied an increasing number of biologically active and structurally unique compounds. Bacteria and other micro-organisms are ubiquitous in the marine environment. They are taxonomically diverse, biologically active, and colonize all marine habitats, from the deep oceans to the shallowest estuaries. It has been estimated that the majority of bacteria in natural aquatic ecosystems are organized in biofilms.

Track 14Marine Probiotics and Prebiotics

Marine Probiotics are microorganisms that are believed to provide health benefits when consumed. The term probiotic is currently used to name ingested microorganism associated with beneficial effects to humans and animals. We usually think of bacteria as something that causes diseases. But your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called "good" or "helpful" bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy. Probiotics are naturally found in your body. We can find them in some foods and supplements. Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium are the most common probiotic bacteria. The Lactobacillus genus has 18 different bacteria strains, while the Bifidobacterium genus consists of eight strains.

Track 15: A Promising Future for Marine Drugs and Natural Products

Natural products, although a valuable and precious resource, also come with their fair share of challenges in a variety of aspects. As mentioned before, one of the major issues concerning the use of natural products are the difficulties associated with obtaining sufficient amounts of material pure enough for discovery and development activities. If a compound is derived from a plant growing only in small quantities or remote locations or a marine organisms residing in great depth or difficult to access regions, re-supply becomes a problem. The threat of losing potentially valuable natural sources of pharmacologically active ingredients is constantly increasing due to the threat of extinction by deforestation of large landmasses and environmental pollution in remote areas as well as global warming. It is estimated that about 70% of the supply of herbal raw material for Ayurveda medicine and other homeopathic medicine in India comes from the wild. To meet the increasing demand for raw material, to conserve wild resources, and to reduce the potential variability in the active ingredient content in medicinal plants from different collection areas, it is important to implement more controlled cultivation programs to ensure quality and to protect resources

Conference Series LLC invites all the participants across the globe to attend the ‘’International Conference and Exhibition on Marine Drugs and Natural Products” Marine Drugs and Natural Products conveys recent discoveries and developments in Marine drugs discovery and natural produced drugs. A complete knowledge of a scientific discipline that described the Marine drug discovery and development and Marine Drugs and Natural Products now explores the use of Natural products in industry as well as healthcare. 

Marine Drugs and Natural Products 2016 is the chemistry of marine organisms is relatively unexplored and represents a vast resource for new medicines to combat major diseases such as cancer, AIDS or malaria. Research typically focuses on sessile organisms or slow moving animals because of their inherent need for chemical defenses. Standard research involves an extraction of the organism in a suitable solvent followed by either an assay of this crude extract for a particular disease target or a rationally guided isolation of new chemical compounds using standard chromatography techniques.  

Moreover, it is likely that for every compound that does make it to the market, a better drug with distinct chemistry, improved bioavailability and less unwanted side effects can be found either in chemical libraries or among the much larger number and diversity of natural products.

In recent years, marine natural product bioprospecting has yielded a considerable number of drug candidates. Most of these molecules are still in preclinical or early clinical development but some are already on the market, such as cytarabine, or are predicted to be approved soon, such as ET743 (YondelisTM). Research into the ecology of marine natural products has shown that many of these compounds function as chemical weapons and have evolved into highly potent inhibitors of physiological processes in the prey, predators or competitors of the marine organisms that use them. Some of the natural products isolated from marine invertebrates have been shown to be, or are suspected to be, of microbial origin and this is now thought to be the case for the majority of such molecules. Marine microorganisms, whose immense genetic and biochemical diversity is only beginning to be appreciated, look likely to become a rich source of novel chemical entities for the discovery of more effective drugs.

Summary:

Natural products play an important role in drug discovery. About more than 50 percent of FDA-approved drugs were Natural products or natural products derivatives.

 For thousands of year’s natural products have played a very important role in health care and prevention of diseases.  It is estimated that about 70% of the supply of herbal raw material for Ayurveda and other homeopathic medicines in India comes from the wild. To meet the increasing demand for raw material, to conserve wild resources, and to reduce the potential variability in the active ingredient content in medicinal plants from different collection areas, it is important to implement more controlled cultivation programs to ensure quality and to protect resources. 

The global market for botanical and plant-derived drugs was valued at $23.2 billion in 2013 and $24.4 billion in 2014. This total market is expected to reach $25.6 billion in 2015 and nearly $35.4 billion in 2020, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.6% from 2015 to 2020.

Scope and Importance:

Investigations into natural products have recently regained prominence with the increasing understanding of their biological significance and increasing recognition of the origin and function of their structural diversity. This issue highlights some of the major questions and advances in natural products research, from recent synthetic approaches to access complicated natural products to a new educational program which utilizes natural products as a basis for discovery-based research.

Funds Allocated For Natural Sciences Research

General macro-level economic outcomes for university graduates in the natural sciences and engineering also provide evidence for the positive outcomes of NSERC-funded students. In 2011-12, unemployment levels in the natural science or engineering occupations were considerably below national levels at 3% compared to general unemployment levels of 7.4%; employment opportunities in natural sciences and engineering have also continued to grow as the natural science and engineering labour force surpassed the 1.2 million mark in 2011-12 becoming one of the fastest growing occupational groups in Canada over the past 20 years. Furthermore, the average annual salaries for natural sciences and engineering professions in 2011-12 were 31% over the national average for all occupations.

The Discovery Grants program is the mainstay of support for university-based research, as it provides funding for on-going programs of research. To be funded, researchers must demonstrate research excellence and high productivity, as well as contributions to the training of highly qualified people. Over 45% of NSERC's Discovery Grants expenditures support students at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral levels as well as postdoctoral fellows through stipends provided by NSERC-funded professors.

Annual publications showed a significant growth trend since 1997, and fluctuated increasing first and then decreasing during 2008-2013. The number of NIH-funded projects has been significant increased since 1997, showed a peak in 2009, and decreased from 2010, probably due to the reduction of NIH total fund from 2010. But the number of projects granted by the NSFC has shown a significant growth trend, demonstrating China's increased research funding in NPs against cancer. Compared with the rapidly increased publications and research funding, the global patents applications increases slowly since 1999 and started remaining stable from 2005 till 2013.

According to the report of United States pharmaceutical manufacturers Association (PhRMA) in 2014, the United States pharmaceutical companies put more and more expenditures on drug discovery from 1997-2006, but the output number of the new molecular entity drugs is decreasing annually. This is a kind of translational gap. Starting from 2007, the R and D investment of new drugs slowly increased in a relative stable manner, while the number of new drugs approved by FDA increased during this period, it means the translational gap are narrowing. But compared with that of all new drugs approved by FDA, the number of anticancer drugs shows a continuous increasing.

New and Emerging Plant Industries Three-Year RD&E Plan

TTO projects that align with both its industry specific RD&E funding priorities and the Core Funded Plant Industries 3YP will be considered by RIRDC. RIRDC funds will be negotiated with the industry for the three year period. An indicative 5% of the Program budget is allocated to Feasibility studies and industry literature reviews i.e. $70,000 per annum in an indicative Program annual total budget of $1,400,000. An indicative 55% of Program budget is allocated to Incubate new and emerging plant industries, support breakthrough projects i.e. $770,000 per annum in an indicative Program annual total budget of $1,400,000.

Australia produces between 6 million and 8 million tonnes of fodder per annum with a GVP of approximately $2 billion (Australian Fodder Industry Association website accessed 25 September 2014). For the five years 2009-13 essential oil and plant extract projects to the value of $4.6 million were managed by RIRDC, industry contributed 10% of total project cost.
