Exhibition: Pharmaceutical Time Travels: From Ancient Plant Remedies to Modern Medicines
Plants have been used for 1000s of years in the treatment of human diseases, though this historical knowledge is often lost. Our interdisciplinary research group uses Nordic historic texts and archaeological remains as inspiration to ‘rediscover’ what plants have historically been used to treat disease.
This exhibit provides a pictorial overview of our work, from the Nordic texts that inspire us, to the cutting-edge methods we use to test whether these plants can be used as modern-day drugs.
The event is supported by UiO:Life Science.
