General Introduction:

Natural products have a long and successful track record of providing first-in-class drugs and pharmacophore (scaffolds) in all therapeutic areas, serving as a bridge between modern and traditional medicine. In cooperation with natural product researchers and biochemists, we are interested in the structural determination, modification and total synthesis of natural compounds with significant bioactivities and hopefully it leads to the discovery of novel medicine for the world.
