We are thrilled to announce that Department of Chemistry is going to organize a 03-Days “1st National Conference on Medicinal Plants Research (1st NCMPR)” to be held on “29th – 31st August 2018”, at Karakoram International University, Gilgit. The event shall be inaugurated by Professor Dr. Muhammad Iqbal Choudhary (H.I., S.I., T.I.), National Distinguished Professor and an eminent scientist of Pakistan. The program of 1st NCMPR promises to blend the academic, professional, social and cultural experiences because it is intended to invite and host the researchers from all provinces of Pakistan. 1st NCMPR offers all the participants a great experience.

The main highlights of the Department of Chemistry in the past few years are furnished at a glance.

  • Best Department of the Year 2016 Award
  • Best Researcher of the Year 2016 Award
  • Best Teacher of the Year 2016 Award
  • Best University Teacher Award (2016)
  • UNESCO Green Chemistry Award
  • Highest Impact Factor Publications in KIU

We do believe that the participants who will take part in our 1st NCMPR will improve their scientific studies by communicating their science and sharing their knowledge and experience in the focused research themes. The major focused research themes of 1st NCMPR are:

  • Indigenous Medicinal Plants
  • Chemical/Biological Aspects of Natural Products
  • Bioactive Principles of Natural Origin
  • Herbal Formulations
  • Innovative Scientific Approaches Towards New Discoveries in Chemical Sciences
  • Synthetic Mimics of Natural Products

The conference (1st NCMPR) is conceived to gather academia, researchers, professionals and related personnel on a single platform to devise a strategy to exploit an important natural resource for research and economic growth of the country. Medicinal flora is an important asset of Gilgit-Baltistan, the ethnobotanical studies reveal that the local communities are mainly dependent for different health conditions. However, the flora is yet to be investigated on scientific standards to discover its real therapeutic value based on the indigenous information. This is the first event to provide a forum for University teachers and students to share their ideas and knowledge pertaining to plants and their therapeutic potential. 1st NCMPR will provide an opportunity to young faculty and researchers to interact with national renown scientists working in the same research area to shape their career and come up with novel findings addressing sustainable development goals (SDGs) to contribute in the national economy.
