About plant medicine

As the result of years of optimization by nature, natural products are perfectly suited to interact with biological macromolecules like proteins and nucleic acids. All sources of natural products such as plants, microorganisms, animals, etc. are therefore of potential biomedical relevance to elucidate cellular mechanisms and modulate their functioning to the needs of modern medicine.

Journal of Ethnopharmacology and Fitoterapia provide a platform for you to publish your research and explore the plant-human interaction in the light of modern molecular sciences.
