Division of Pharmacognosy And Chemistry of Natural Products, University of Athens

Pharmacy is one of the first scientific subjects taught at the University of Athens. On May 18th, 1835 by Royal Decree was established in Athens the “Theoretical and Practical Didactic Shop of Surgery, Medicine and Pharmacopoeia” and this was exactly two years prior to the actual inauguration of the University of Athens (May 3rd, 1837).

However, “practicing” pharmacists pre-existed in the country. According to the historians, during the pre-Revolutionary years (early 1800s) Greek pharmacy stores were run by medical doctors in show-cases which contained, mostly, first-aid drugs. Other drugs were also sold “in makeshift shops, by the barefoot doctors or by old ladies who practiced therapeutics with tender care towards the ill”. Prescription products were also available in the form of antipyretic elixirs, tonic drops, pills, etc. (more…)

Department of Pharmacognosy and Botany, Tbilisi State University

Department of Pharmacognosy and Botany was established in 1919 as the “Cathedra of Pharmacy and Pharmacognosy” at pharmaceutical division of Tbilisi State University.

Department of Pharmacognosy, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology

Pharmacognosy, defined as the study of the physical, chemical, biochemical and biological properties of drugs or potential drugs or drug substances of natural origin as well as the search for new drugs from natural sources is a specialized area of applied science which deals with natural products that affect the health of humans and animals. Due to the widespread use of botanicals in developing as well as their resurgence in industrialized nations, significant concerns have been raised about their quality, safety and efficacy. Pharmacognosy plays a critical role in ensuring the authenticity, purity and consistency of the materials employed in this regard. It contributes significantly to the practice of Pharmacy and Herbal Medicine. The Department of Pharmacognosy offers various courses as part of the 4 year Bachelor of Pharmacy (B.Pharm) and Bachelor of Science in Herbal Medicine (BSc. Herbal Medicine) degree programmes.

Department of Pharmacognosy- Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences

Pharmacognosy

Starting from microscopy, pharmacognosy has developed into a hightech science during the last 40 years. Today, it plays an integral role in the field of Pharmaceutical Sciences through the discovery, identification, and evolution of bioactive compounds from natural sources. Studies of plants used in European, North American, African, and Asian traditional medicine are conducted with the goals of identifying bioactive constituents and discovering new lead compounds.

Pharmaceutical Screening

Main interests are in the field of plant constituents with anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, antioxidant, as well as antimicrobial activities, with a spezial emphasis on antimycobacterial activity. The inhibition of leukotriene biosynthesis in human granulocytes by 5-LOX and inhibition of 12(S)-HETE formation by 12-LOX in human platelets as cellular tests, and inhibition of prostaglandin biosynthesis by COX-1 and COX-2 as enzymatic in vitro assays, are established in our Department for screening and testing of extracts and pure compounds with anti-inflammatory activity.
