Scientific Program was UPDATED! Take a look


Welcome to the XXV SILAE Congress

As President of SILAE 2016 and Director of the Department of Life Science at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, I have the privilege to welcome all participants to the XXV Italo-Latinamerican Congress of Ethnomedicine, which will take place in Modena from September 11th to September 15th 2016. 
The overall goal of the meeting is to shed light on the importance of medicinal plants, and to disclose, by innovative models and techniques, new potential applications for the treatment or prevention of diseases. Special emphasis will be given to scientific breakthroughs in the area of traditional medicine unveiling new perspectives for the use of native plants that have been poorly studied so far.
Thanks to the contribution of many worldwide recognized experts, a multidisciplinary approach will be the file rouge connecting sessions on anthropology, ethnobotany, phytochemistry, food chemistry and nutrition, green and analytical chemistry, pharmacognosy and medicinal chemistry, experimental and clinical studies on natural products within a unique and exciting congress.
Like previous meetings of the Italo-Latinamerican Society of Ethnomedicine, this conference will represent an excellent opportunity to establish new scientific partnerships, to share results from the most recent studies in the field of traditional medicine and to update the current knowledge on bioactive and/or natural compounds and on their applications.
Furthermore, the meeting will also offer the chance to spend some spare time in a region worldwide recognized as the land where art, culture and tradition are fused with the passion for motors, music and cuisine. 
Looking forward to see all of you in Modena next September.
Kind regards
Prof. Daniela Quaglino
