This is the 11th in the series of meetings on the Synthesis and Applications of Isotopes and Isotopically Labelled Compounds which have been organized by the International Isotope Society. The symposium will attract scientists in many fields related to Isotopes and Isotopically Labelled Compounds. This will include the production of Isotopes, purification and enrichment of Isotopes, the synthesis of Isotopically Labelled Compounds and their many applications in Drug Metabolism, Pharmacokinetics, Drug Development, Biotechnologies, Clinical Studies, Agriculture, Environmental Studies and Diagnostics.
09.09.2012 - 13.09.2012

The conference will focus on the synthesis and applications of isotopes and isotopically labelled compounds. This includes all aspects of synthesis, analytics and applications of radioactive and stable isotopic labelled compounds as well as radioactive storage management and waste disposal.
The scientific program will be composed of invited plenary lectures by prominent scientists, invited lectures and oral communications as well as poster presentations.
