WORLD EXPERTS TO MAP HERBAL MEDICINE'S FUTURE
Some of the world's most eminent medicinal plant experts will speak at a major international forum on the global future of herbal medicine to be hosted by Southern Cross University at its Lismore campus, from 16-18 June this year.
With invited speakers coming from Australia, Asia, Europe, USA, Africa and the Pacific, this symposium will feature presentations by 27 key industry figures, including Dr James Duke, a botanist who inspired the Sean Connery character in the film 'Medicine Man'; Professor Varro Tyler, a renowned authority on herbal medicine; and Professor Hildebert Wagner, one of the world's leading medicinal plant researchers. An invitation has also been extended to award-winning plant scientist, Her Royal Highness Princess Chulabhorn of Thailand.
Coinciding with Australia's inaugural National Herbal Medicine Week (12-18 June), the event promises to be one of the largest gatherings of national and international herbal medicine professionals and specialists. It will include the industry's leading manufacturers, plant scientists, practitioners, primary producers and regulators.
Appropriately, Herbal Medicine into the New Millennium will be hosted by Southern Cross University in an area famous for growing and manufacturing natural plant products such as Tea Tree and Echinacea &endash; the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales.
Proudly sponsored by the New South Wales Department of State and Regional Development, the conference will also celebrate the official launch of the Cellulose Valley Technology Park in Lismore, Australia's first quality-assured centre for research, manufacturing and production of herbal medicines and related products. The Technology Park will cater for research and commercial development of natural plant products, particularly for their therapeutic application, and will support a range of compatible ancillary business activities.
