The annual conference boasts high attendance, new offerings

OXFORD, Miss. Oxford and the University of Mississippi once again played host to the botanical industry during the 22nd annual International Conference on Botanical Science.

The National Natural Products Research Center organizes the annual event, this year in collaboration with the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition at the US Food and Drug Administration.

Cara Welch, director of the FDA's Office of Dietary Supplement Programs at the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, served as the event's keynote speaker. Welch presented a retrospective of over 30 years of science-based regulation of dietary supplements.

The conference is unique in that it brings regulators, industry, government and academia together on a platform to meet and discuss current regulatory aspects, said Ikhlas Khan, director of NCNPR. It helps attendees keep up with the latest science and regulations by bringing the best researchers in their fields to present and leading regulators to discuss current regulations.

Stephen Duke, NCNPR principal scientist, delivered the 2024 McChesney Lecture, Natural Products in Food and Agriculture. The lecture, given for the first time during the 2022 conference, is named for former UM professor James D. McChesney, who was instrumental in founding NCNPR.

For the first time, the conference was held as a joint meeting with the 7th World Congress of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants. As a result, sessions on Afro-Caribbean medicinal plants and ensuring the authenticity and quality of mushrooms were added to the list of events.

The 2024 conference also saw an increase in attendance, surpassing 330 participants compared to 250 in 2023.

We are excited about the tremendous success of this year's ICSB, said Donna Strum, dean of the School of Pharmacy. This conference not only highlights our commitment to excellence in botanical science, but also fosters an invaluable environment for innovation and collaboration among participants.

We look forward to the continued growth and impact of this conference in the years to come.

Plans are already underway for the 23rd annual conference, set for April 7-10, 2025. For more information about ICSB, visit
