This summer, the ASP will be hosting a virtual symposium series during the month of July entitled “Vanguards of Natural Product Research 2021,” which will highlight the work and creativity of students and postdocs in the natural products community. The symposium dates are planned during the mornings (ET) of July 16th, 23rd, and 30th; events will include podium talks, poster presentations, as well as meet-and-greet sessions for all participants. The symposium will use Virtual Chair a virtual meeting platform that will allow participants to freely navigate to throughout the conference hall, browse posters, and communicate with each other in one-on-one and small group sessions.Whether you are new to the field or a seasoned veteran, we hope you will join us to meet the students and postdocs who are on the frontlines of natural products and learn about the cutting edge research being carried out around the world.
