Laboratory of Natural Products

Director: Professor Dr. Her Royal Highness Princess Chulabhorn Krom Phra Srisavangavadhana

As natural products continue to play a major role in drug discovery, especially at the early stage, our laboratory has focused on advancing the frontier which would ultimately lead to the discovery of natural products with novel skeletons, endless potential, and uncharted utilization. Despite traditional clinical use, the composition in herbal medicines has not been clearly identified. This has prompted our team to undertake systematic chemotaxonomic approach to elucidate the structures of bioactive compounds, some of which have warranted further investigations and development into drug-like candidates for their direct use or templates for structural modifications.

Our ultimate aim is to advance these natural products and their analogs towards their medicinal use with more desirable pharmacological properties and fewer adverse side effects. In addition, understanding molecular mechanism(s) of their biological actions with the aid of computational chemistry is pivotal for further developing these compounds into drug candidates. Currently, three main areas of natural products research are: 
Research work in natural products chemistry has culminated as published articles in high-ranking journals, many of which are in quartile 1. Such accomplishment has reflected the high quality of research undertaken in our laboratory which also has served as a platform for disseminating scientific data to bridge the gap in natural products utilization in medicine.
