Main Area of Expertise

Main facilities and/or core expertise
• Search for drug leads from nature using chemoinformatics and biochemometry with special emphasis on candidates against viral infections (SARS COV2, Influenza), inflammation and metabolic syndrome. • Discovery of bioactive compounds from untapped sources and traditional medicine using big data analysis for the targeted identification and isolation of bioactive constituents. • Phenotypic screening using C. elegans (life/health span, fat accumulation, neurodegeneration) • Analysis, isolation and structure elucidation of secondary metabolites from different resources (plants, lichens, microbes, fungi) • SFx-green technology for extraction, analysis and isolation of natural products
