CoSMeSe (Interacademic Union for studying of natural secondary metabolites) was established in 2005 to promote and coordinate the activities of the researchers of the University of Roma “La Sapienza”, Novara and Cagliari, undertaken to isolate and distinguish the secondary metabolites of natural origin. Today, these molecules represent an important sector with great potentiality. Actually, plant world offers a large range of complex and original structures, essential to the development of new molecules destined to pharmaceutical, herbal, cosmetic and nutraceutical field.

Another priority of CoSMeSe is the post-degree training with Research Doctorates, Specialization Schools and/or first and second level Master, improving scientific knowledge of young graduates in Vegetal Biology, Phytochemistry, Pharmacology, Pharmacognosy and Toxicology areas.

COSMESE is managed by a Board of directors constituted by a representative of each Academic Institute and a representative of the Researchers. The Board of directors designates the Director with function of representation, scientific coordination and administrative management. He is assisted by a Research Council composed of three Emeritus Researchers who select the research lines and the projects, valuing the actions and the results.
