Natural Medicines

Focusing on Western Australian honeys, for future medicinal purposes

Natural product chemistry spans the isolation and identification of bioactive compounds in traditional medicines, to the quality control of herbal products and other complementary medicines.

Currently, our research teams mainly focus on a range of Western Australian honeys, measuring key phytochemical parameters and obtaining basic bioactivity data. This work will generate data that can assist in the identification of Western Australian honeys that might have the potential to be marketed in the future as medicinal honeys.
