Natural products offer a vast source of chemical diversity and yield unusual and unexpected lead structures. As such small molecules produced in this way have been designed by nature to interact with macromolecules (Proteins, DNA etc) and thus modulate the function of such macromolecules. Natural products can derive a wide portfolio of lead structures that shall drive next generation drug discovery. It also provides an opportunity to explore poly herbal formulations that can become potential source for Phytopharmaceuticals, Cosmeceuticals and Food Supplements.
Our Natural Products research focuses on two major areas
