Revisit on the potential of natural compounds in drug discovery

Although many pharmaceutical drugs have been derived from natural products, few companies are doing drug discovery with natural products actively these days. However, the potential of natural products could be increased in the era of open innovation. In this seminar we will revisit on the potential of natural products as useful seeds of invative drugs, showing some case studies of application of natural products as well as cutting edge technologies useful for natural product based drug discovery.
