The NPDI is dedicated to making productive use of one of the world’s greatest collections of Natural Products. The NPDI provides microbial and plant extracts, fermentation optimization, purification chemistry to support bioassay driven fractionation, and structure elucidation. It houses a collection of >30,000 fungi and actinomycete microorganisms, and genomic DNA. This previously private collection of natural products is provided to qualified researchers in academia and industry. Research activity has lead to the discovery of novel molecules with biological activity and to the formation of new life sciences companies that will seek to commercialize discoveries centered on natural products. Businesses include those developing pharmaceutical, nutritional, flavor enhancing, cosmetic ingredient, agricultural, and animal health products.
