Abstract

For the international congress 'Plants for Human Health in the Post-Genome Era' organized on behalf of the Phytochemical Society of Europe (PSE) and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland almost 200 distinguished scientists from academia and industry are gathering in Helsinki from the 26th until the 29th of August 2007. This is the first PSE regular congress after the 50 years celebration of the Society. The scientific programme covers all aspects of modern plant science in relation to human health in eight consecutive sessions: Opportunities for plant biotechnology, health benefits from plants, emerging technologies in plant research, plants as factories for pharmaceuticals (one session each for secondary metabolites and proteins), large-scale production for industrial applications and future outlook. Central aim is to stimulate interdisciplinary discussion. Thirty outstanding speakers from various fields are presenting and discussing their latest results. Further contributions are made by short oral presentations selected from the submitted abstracts and by poster presentations. The registered participants come from 33 countries. Major financial contribution is provided by The Academy of Finland, Philip Morris International and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. Additionally the meeting is supported by Sembiosys Genetics Inc., SoluCel Ltd., Elintarviketeollisuusliitto (ETL), Apivita, European Science Foundation (ESF), European Plant Science Organization (EPSO) and last but not least the Phytochemical Society of Europe (PSE).
