Frontier Science: Evolution of medicinal plants, and implications for bioprospecting - T45

Thursday 5th January 2017

15:00 - 16:00

Location : To be confirmed

Speakers

  1. Professor Julie Hawkins - School of Biological Sciences, University of Reading

There is controversy about whether traditional medicine can guide drug discovery, and investment in bioprospecting informed by ethnobotanical data has fluctuated. One view is that traditionally used medicinal plants are not necessarily efficacious and there are no robust methods for distinguishing those which are most likely to be bioactive when selecting species for further testing. Here, I discuss the use of methods from plant evolution to revitalize the use of traditional knowledge in bioprospecting.
