“Amber in the History of Medicine”

The Conference aims to discuss a wide range of actual multidisciplinary problems relating to the use of amber and its derivatives in medicine and pharmacy from Ancient times till the Present.

Are the ancient and contemporary claims that amber is a remedy for many diseases adequately justified? How do the old myths of the miraculous properties of amber differ from the new ones? What are the scientific grounds and perspectives of the medical use of amber today? These and others issues dealing with the Conference theme are offered for a consideration.
