Department of Pharmacognosy, University of Ibadan

Welcome to the Department of Pharmacognosy, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Ibadan., Nigeria. The Department is primarily engaged in the teaching of crude drugs under the Bachelor of Pharmacy degree (B. Pharm.) that is awarded by the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Ibadan. The overall goal of the Department is to largely contribute to the multidisciplinary drug research and development from natural products, using the rich flora of Africa as the main accessible raw material. The Department runs a postgraduate program leading to the degree of Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Pharmacognosy, which consists of crude drug standardization and general crude drug analysis, as well as the degrees of M.Phil. and Ph.D. which involve laboratory research in different specific areas of the subject of Pharmacognosy.

Department of Pharmacognosy, Cairo University

Overview

Pharmacognosy is the oldest medical science. The name is derived from the Greek “pharmakon” = drug & “gnosis”= knowledge.

Conventional Scope:
Chemistry & biology of natural products derived from terrestrial & marine organisms (plants, animals, or microbes).

Pharmacognosy in the 21st Century:
Highly interdisciplinary science drawing on a broad spectrum of biological & socio-scientific subjects. Renewed interest in the area of natural products education & research is highly motivated by:

1.The search for new leads for drug development

2.The implication of biotechnology for improvement of natural products production

3.The health claims for nutraceuticals

4.The validation of traditional medicines

5.The widespread use of phytotherapeutics

Modern Scope:
Production, biology, chemistry, biotechnology, enzymology, genetics, pharmacology, toxicology & quality control of natural drugs, pharmaceutical aids, extracts, herbicides & insecticides. (more…)

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.

Department of Pharmacognosy, University of Pécs Medical School

The Institute of Pharmacognosy, was founded in September, 2003, as part of the Faculty of Medicine, University of Pécs. Its responsibilities include teaching the courses “Pharmacobotany” and “Pharmacognosy” for undergraduate students of pharmacy, as well as higher level subjects related to the field of medicinal plants and drugs for graduate and postgraduate students. Furthermore, it offers a wide choice of facultative courses at various levels. (more…)

Department of Pharmacognosy, Semmelweis University

Department of Pharmacognosy, Semmelweis University is one of the oldest institutes of both at the University and at the Faculty of Pharmacy. Detached from the former Institute of Pharmacology it took up the activity by the name: Institute of Pharmacognosy and Toxicology in 1914. Professor Zoltán Vámossy was appointed as the first director, whose successors were: Zsigmond Jakabházy, Béla Issekutz, Pál Lipták, János Halmai and Gisella Petri Professors. The current director, Professor Éva Szőke was appointed in 1996. (more…)

Department of Pharmacognosy, University of Mississippi

Department Chair

Welcome to the Department of Pharmacognosy at the University of Mississippi. Pharmacognosy as a constituent scientific discipline has for nearly 200 years referred to studies of “natural product drugs”. During the second half of the 20th century, Pharmacognosy evolved from being a descriptive botanical subject to one exhibiting a more chemical and biological focus. The advent of the 21st century has given new relevance to Pharmacognosy teaching in academic pharmacy institutions, as a result of the explosive growth in both the use of herbal remedies (phytomedicines) and the discovery of bioactive products from marine resources. Pharmacognosy research areas are continually expanding, and currently include aspect of cell and molecular biology in relation to natural products, ethnobotany and phytotherapy, in addition to the more traditional analytical method development and phytochemistry.
