The Franco-Brazilian Network on natural Products A new network promoting Franco-Brazilian cooperation in Natural Products Research Teams involved in the FB2NP Created in 2019, the FB2NP network involves more than 40 teams in France and Brazil, working together in natural products research and exchanging researchers, students and expertise. This represents more than 500 researchers in the fields of pharmacognosy, biotechnology, pharmacology, chemistry and microbiology.


Presentation of the network

The Franco-Brazilian Network on Natural Products (FB2NP) is a new international network of French and Brazilian academic researchers working in the field of natural products research, drug discovery and development. Created in 2019, it federates researchers interested in the isolation, purification, structure elucidation, synthesis and bioactivity of chemical compounds found in nature.

Teams involved

The FB2NP has rapidly expanded and currently includes 40 academic teams with various and complementary expertises including organic, analytical and medicinal chemistry, pharmacognosy and phytochemistry, pharmacology, physiology, microbiology, phycology, toxicology, process engineering, molecular modelization and omics.


Objectives of the FB2NP network

The structuration of this network stands in the long tradition of the Franco-Brazilian scientific partnership and aims to stimulate scientific cooperation, organization of Franco-Brazilian scientific events (congresses, workshops, summer courses, visioconferences), exchanges of researchers and students, as well as dissemination of jobs and training offers. It should also favour the emergence of inter- and transdisciplinary approaches and stimulate exchanges of ideas and experiences. We invite all colleagues interested in joining the network to contact the FB2NP coordinators.
