Comments Natural products are essential for our lives from ancient times. Most of the pharmaceutical products have been found from natural products such as herbs and marine organizations. I am researching to contributions of pharmaceutical product development by finding and examining the efficacy of new lead compounds. In the medicinal plant garden, we are cultivating original plants source of crude drugs that are mainly used in Kampo medicines, and I'm also currently conducting cultivation research with the aim of ensuring a stable supply of medicinal resources. Due to the global warming, it has become difficult to obtain materials such as herbs. In an effort to solve this issue I'm trying to find the way to cultivate such materials in my lab. I would like to ensure good health and well-being of every one of them in the world through my research.
