Synthesizing Anti-Cancer Drugs from Nature Chemistry for the Future: Human Health

    • Courses

Chemicals found in nature can have incredibly useful functionality, including anti-malarial and anti-cancer properties. However, they are usually found in small amounts. Chris Jones, a DPhil student in the Donohoe Group, is synthesizing naturally occurring molecules in the lab so they can be used as drugs on a larger scale.
