More than 10 years, from 2000 up to now, we organized Workshop on Microbial Resources.  Next one, the 24th will be the last workshop organized by us.  Then why not; let us go back to our favorite title, natural product drug discovery and look at the most recent trends and discuss what will be the next step in this area.  Fortunately, experts from USA and Germany come to us. Please join us and let us enjoy natural fermentation products after the workshop at the new Keyaki restaurant on the premise of Tamagawa University.
