The Ayurveda Biology Conclave is a Consultative Meeting on Forming Academic-Industry Research Network. The single-day event associated with the Global Ayurveda Festival Kerala. This conclave aims to facilitate collaboration between academia and industry, focusing on the scientific foundation of Ayurveda and its integration with modern biology. The program will include discussions and presentations under two overarching themes:

Theme: Ayurveda for Modern Biology
10:00 AM to 01:00 PM

The theme “Ayurveda for Modern Biology” explores the integration of Ayurvedic principles into modern biology. It encompasses investigating molecular mechanisms, evaluating Ayurvedic herbs for drug discovery, understanding the mind-body connection, exploring Ayurvedic dietetics’ scientific basis, and examining integrative approaches in healthcare. This theme aims to bridge traditional Ayurvedic wisdom with contemporary biological perspectives.

Theme: Modern Biology for Ayurveda
02:00 PM to 05:00 PM

The theme “Modern Biology for Ayurveda” focuses on scientifically validating and enhancing “Modern Biology for Ayurveda” validates Ayurvedic practices through scientific means, presenting studies on treatment efficacy and safety. It integrates modern biological techniques, including multiomics methodologies, to understand molecular mechanisms. The theme explores the impact of Ayurvedic interventions on the gut microbiome, interactions with Ayurvedic herbs, and the biological basis of lifestyle interventions. Additionally, it delves into the scientific exploration of traditional knowledge and Ayurvedic wisdom on medicinal plants through ethnobotanical surveys, phytochemical analysis, and conservation efforts. This streamlined theme aims to advance Ayurvedic research by incorporating evidence-based approaches from modern biology.

Intended Outcome
The single-day program will provide a collaborative platform for discussions on research methodologies, potential collaborations, and creating funding scheme recommendations in the intersection of Ayurveda and Modern Biology. The meeting aims to establish an Academic-Industry Research Network, fostering a synergistic approach to advancing scientific understanding and applications in Ayurveda and modern biology.
