On behalf of the Isoprenoid Society, we are very pleased to announce that the 25th Congress on Isoprenoids, originally scheduled for 2020 in Karaganda (Kazakhstan), and postponed because of the worldwide COVID19 outbreak, will be held on September 18th -20th 2024 in Naples, Italy.
This Conference series, started at the early 1960s, is one of the longer-running scientific events focused on natural products. The main purposes of the Conferences on Isoprenoids throughout these sixty years have been to promote research in the isoprenoid field at the interface of chemistry, biology, and medicine, with a great attention to industrial applications. The role of science is to contribute to the human progress and to overcome barriers. To this aim, the Isoprenoid conferences facilitate the networking and cooperation between researchers from different countries and provide a forum for the exchange of knowledge among scientists at all career stages in a friendly environment. The conferences have hosted many eminent scientists, including the late Kenji Mori and the Nobel Price laureates Derek H. R. Barton and Ryoji Noyori.
All the previous Conferences in this series have been organized in Eastern Europe countries; thus, this is the first time that Italy hosts this event. The Italian scientific community has a long tradition in the study of natural products, and several highly active groups, with worldwide network of collaborations, are based in Naples and in the Campania Region.
The conference venue, with a beautiful location on the Naples seaside, close to the city center, will allow participants to enjoy a warm hospitality, the outstanding food and wine and the beauty of the Neapolitan coast. In summary, we are confident that the Naples Congress on Isoprenoids will be unforgettable and invite all of you to actively participate.
