Fairfax, VA (April 3, 2023) – We were lucky to hold the 3rd Natural Products Conference in January 2020 just as COVID-19 was about to sweep the globe. Three years later, we were so pleased to welcome the 4th International Conference on Natural Product Discovery and Development in the Genomic Era back to San Diego on January 8 – 12, 2023, with a record-setting attendance of 297 participants from 20 countries. Like the previous meetings, the 4th Natural Products Conference was again jointly sponsored by SIMB, the Korean Society for Microbiology and Biotechnology (KMB), and the Society of Actinomycetes Japan (SAJ).
