Neurobiology Research Team in Natural Health Products

Research on biologically active compounds from plants used in traditional medicine have made significant contributions to the discovery of medicines to treat mental illness and nervous disorders. This award supports the development of a research team that will combine expertise in phytochemistry, ethnopharmacology, neuropharmacology, neuroscience, pharmacognosy and bioinformatics to research potentially therapeutic natural health products. The research will involve fostering dialogue and building collaborative relationships with indigenous BC communities to investigate and build on their traditional plant knowledge.
