Constituents in Traditional Medicinal Plants in Myanmar

Project Leader:

Faculty of P harmacy

In partnership with University of Mandalay in Myanmar, we carried out exploratory research on constituents in medicinal plants collected in Myanmar, and on their pharmacological activities. We will investigate further pharmacological activities of plants extracts that provide interesting results. While many medicinal plants have been traditionally used as folk remedies in Myanmar, for economic reasons, advanced investigations and evaluations on their constituents and pharmacological activities have seldom been made. This study aims at contributing to technological exchange with Myanmar, as well as exploring lead compounds for drugs.
