On behalf of the Centre for Natural Products Discovery (CNPD), Liverpool John Moores University and the Organising Committee, I am delighted to invite you to participate in the 2nd Annual CNPD Conference 2021 on ‘Natural Products in COVID-19’, which will be held virtually on 13-14 May 2021.  


This will be a unique two day conference showcasing the best in phytochemical research centred on the theme of “contemporary issues in phytochemical research relevant to Covid-19”. The conference itself will take the format of 16 invited speakers who will deliver their latest research in 20 minutes, focusing on what matters most. The spotlight of the conference will then move to young scientists (PhD students and Postdocs) who will also present their work.  

The conference will be held virtually as a consequence of the ongoing pandemic, but will be hosted by the Centre for Natural Products Discovery (CNPD) in conjunction with Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU). The CNPD conducts externally-funded natural products research with the aim of discovering new high-value natural products that will contribute to tackling current and future societal and global challenges in health and well-being, socio-economic growth, natural conservation and environmental sustainability.  


The CNPD is based in the School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences at LJMU, which is the second oldest Pharmacy education provider in the UK, and has a rich history of natural products research.   


I look forward to welcoming you to this exciting conference. Pls Join us and have a great time with our CNPD.....!!!
