THE PRAIRIE TO PHARMACY VISION

Nature is a sum of connections.


As scientists, we identify these connections. 


The Natural Product Laboratory at the University of Lethbridge is finding chemicals in prairie plants that connect us to health, well being, and new knowledge.

OUR MISSION

"To find all the chemicals in all the plants"

Prairie plants contain special natural products that help them survive.  We have created a unique prairie plant extract library, which we are characterizing by cell-based phenotypic assays.  We are finding potential anti-cancer medicines, well-being products, and scientific tools.
