The wonderful success of The 1st and 2nd Euro-Med Conference on "Plant Natural Products" (BioNat) held in Egypt 2009 and 2011, strongly inspires us to organize the 3rd Euro-Med Conference on “Natural Products” BioNat-III. BioNat conference series aims to bring the scientists, decision makers, industry men, technologists, young graduates, and students across the globe to promote exchange and discussion of issues relating to natural products (metabolic networks, vitamins, carotenoids, flavonoids, anti-nutrients, toxins, products of plant-associated microorganisms and bioactive proteins). Attention is also devoted to the herbal medicine, plant-derived drugs, phytopharmaceuticals, synthetic drugs, ethno-pharmacology, biodiversity as well as legislations and research strategies. This gathering will provide a tool to establish interdisciplinary network between Egyptian and the international scientists in order to inspire and provoke crucial discussions and debates in the field. The conference program includes keynote talks, oral presentations, poster sessions, round-talk discussions, as well as sessions for fund raising, scientific writing and meet-the-expert.

1. Plant Natural Products: Biotechnology, Pharmacology and Toxicology
2. Marine Natural Products: Biotechnology, Pharmacology and Toxicology
