Pharmacognosy: Associations & Societies
Pharmacognosy is a branch of pharmaceutical sciences which focuses on drugs of herbal and natural origin. Although pharmacognosy mostly deals with medicinal herbs, some animal products and bacterial products are also discussed in it.
The Japanese Society of Pharmacognosy (JSP) was founded in 1947. We serve to promote research in pharmacognosy and its related fields to provide the members with the oppornities for presentations, exhchange of knowledge, and cooperation/coordinaton among relevant societies.
JSP currently has over 1,200 members including regular, student, supporting, and honorary categories. The JSP's primary scope lies in the chemical, biochemical and biological properties of medicinal natural products and their derivatives. Research topics include the search for novel medicinal sources, structure elucidation, chemotaxonomy, genetic analysis, pharmacology, and biosynthesis.
The American Society of Pharmacognosy (ASP) is a scientific society that promotes the growth and development of pharmacognosy through presentation of research achievements and publication of meritorious research. ASP was founded in 1959 as an outgrowth of the Plant Science Seminar established in 1923.
Society of Pharmacognosy is a national body of Pharmacy Professionals not only belonging to the stream of Pharmacognosy, but all the other disciplines in function till date. The quality of services being delivered in succession by the society could be assessed by the fact it has members not only from India but from all round the globe.
Every year, society organizes a customary annual national convention and once in four year international conference to compile the thoughts of scientists and academicians engaged in pharmacognosy research.
The Phytochemical Society of Europe (PSE) exists to serve all those with an interest in the chemistry and biochemistry of plants and in the applications of such knowledge in industry and agriculture.
The Society organises two or three conferences each year in the United Kingdom and Continental Europe.
The Society originated as the Plant Phenolics Group which was inaugurated in Cambridge, U.K. in 1957 as an informal group of chemists and biologists interested in the phenolic constituents of plants. As the interest of members widened, many wished to include their own fields within the activities of the group and it was resolved at the 7th Annual General Meeting of the Plant Phenolics Group at Leeds in 1964 to become the Phytochemical Group. As a result continued expansion of the membership the Group became the Phytochemical Society at the Annual General Meeting at Imperial College, London on the 11th April 1967. In recognition of the growing membership of Continental Europe the Society adopted its present name at an Extraordinary General Meeting in London on 6th January 1977 and as such held its first regular meeting in Continental Europe in Ghent in September of that year.
