Dive Into Microbes, Metals and Metabolites for Drug Discovery
Technology Networks: Dive Into Microbes, Metals and Metabolites for Drug Discovery
Host-associated microbial communities are unique sources for natural product drug discovery.
By studying these microbes, novel and targeted drug leads can be identified and critical questions answered within the broader field of chemical ecology.
Dr. Balunas’ research connects the dots between microbes, metals and metabolites to discover new medicines for a wide range of human diseases.
In this webinar, Dr. Balunas will showcase her latest research into deriving natural products from the marine invertebrate Botryllus schlosseri.
