On 7 May 2015, SBC hosted a group of prominent scientists from the Republic of Korea. Dr Ohseok Kwon, Dr MyoungChul Kim are both from Kyungpook National University while Dr Youngho Cho is from SOKN Institute of Ecology and Conservation. Dr Kwon who led the delegation, also represented the National Institute of Biological Resources (NIBR) of Korea.
The main aim of this visit was to establish linkages and to discuss future collaboration with SBC. Both parties foresee synergy in research strengths and collaborative work based on traditional knowledge and through SBC’s Natural Product Library.
