On behalf of Thammasat University (TU) and the Asian Society of Natural Products (ASNP), it is my pleasure to invite you to attend the 8th International Conference on Natural Products to be held on November 30th- December 2nd, 2020, at Jomtien Palm Beach Hotel & Resort, Pattaya, Chonburi, Thailand. The theme of the Congress is Cannabis, Traditional Medicine, Functional Food, Nutrition and Natural Health Products: Additional Tools for Healthcare Delivery.

Thailand has held six NATPROs in the past, as the first being was initiated in 2005 by Professor Maitree Suttajit, Mahasarakham University, with the aim of building research networks on natural products. NATPRO 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 were subsequently organized by Naresuan University, Rangsit University, Chiang Mai University, Prince of Songkla University and Khon Kaen University in 2008, 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2016, respectively. After NATPRO6, a group of scientists has decided that this international conference should continue at the global level under the auspices of an international society. ASNP was thus founded in 2016 for the benefit of members in Asia and to assume the responsibility of organizing NATPRO conferences. It hosted NATPRO7 in Korea in 2018.

With the success of the past conferences, the ASNP Board of Directors decided to hold the Congress in Thailand for the seventh time, to be hosted by Thammasat University. Pattaya City, where the conference will be held, is world famous for its many tourist attractions. Guests can enjoy many activities, from sunrise to sunset, such as water sports, go-karting, bungee jumping, cabaret shows and many more. It is, therefore, with pleasure that the Organizing Committee invites you to the 8th International Conference on Natural Products. This conference will bring together practitioners, researchers and educators from around the world who are engaged in the fields related to human health and wellness, such as pharmacy, medicine which includes traditional and alternative medicine, natural products innovation, cannabis, agriculture, food, nutrition, biotechnology of natural health and innovation of natural products. The Congress will feature plenary lectures, a series of presentations and discussions with concurrent technical and poster sessions, informal gatherings, and exhibitions.

We look forward to welcoming you at The 8th International Conference on Natural Products on November 30th-December 2nd, 2020.

Yours sincerely,
