The approach includes a program of: (1) Discovery of secondary metabolites from natural resources with anti-infective and anti-cancer activities based on molecular and cell-based assays [NP301, C4, PS 4B]; (2) Characterizing mechanisms of action, selectivity, toxicity and functional activity for the best candidate compounds with anti-microbial and anti-cancer properties in secondary assays and in animal models [NP301, C4, PS 4B]; and (3)Selection, agronomics and analysis of medicinally important plants and their derived products [NP301, C4, PS 4B].
