Dear Colleague,


We are pleased to inform you that the School of Microbiology, Mahatma Gandhi National
Institute of Research and Social Action (MGNIRSA) is organizing a National Conf
erence on

Rediscovery of Importance of Herbal Plants and their Applications

on
14
rd

th

September,
2012.


Herbal medicine has become a popular form of healthcare. The consumption of plant
-
based medicines and other botanicals in the West has increased
manifold in recent years.
For example, between 1990

2000, an increase of over 380 % in sales in the United States
was recorded. Global sales of herbal products, including herbal medicines, is already over
US
$

10
11

and is expected to exceed US
$

10
12

in the
next 20 years at the present growth
rate.


About two centuries ago, our medicinal practices were largely dominated by plant
-
based
medicines. However, the medicinal use of herbs went into a rapid decline in the West
when more predictable synthetic drugs wer
e made commonly available. In contrast, many
developing nations continued to benefit from the rich knowledge of medical herbalism.
For example, Ayurvedic medicine in India, Kampo medicine in Japan, traditional Chinese
medicine (TCM), Tibetian medicine and
Unani medicine in the Middle East and South Asia
are still used by a large majority of people.


In the Indian context AYUSH i.e Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddhaa & Homoepathy is being
accorded top priority for wholesome alternative medicine. While mixtures of

different
medinical plants are being used for treatment of various ailments there is a need to
identify the active principle components of the mixture and study their anti
-
microbial
efficacy both ‘in vito’ and ‘in vivo’.


With a view to provide a national

forum for
experts in the key disciplines of microbiology,
biotechnology, plant sciences, cell biology, biochemistry, molecular genetics and medicinal
chemistry to identify critical problems that may be best addressed using a multidisciplinary
approach,

th
e Conference is being organized. I request you to kindly participate in the
conference with your fellow scientists and research scholars and make this conference a
success.


We look forward to welcome you to the pearl city of Hyderabad.


With best regards

and good wishes,


Prof. P.P. Reddy Dr
