Natural products are the most consistent and successful source of drugs. In India, Ayurveda remains one of the most ancient and living traditions, practiced for the treatment of various diseases and disorders. India has many plant species, and medicinal properties have been assigned to several thousand of them. Many major institutes and research centers are currently involved in exploring this opportunity to investigate newer drugs from the ancient principles of Ayurveda.
Researchers believe in combining the strengths of Ayurveda with modern scientific techniques such as NMR, MS, and chromatographic techniques to provide new functional leads with high therapeutic value in a short span of time. But natural products research often faces many hurdles, which hinders drug development. We believe that natural products research information can potentially benefit many researchers involved in this area. We also believe that research on natural products is often delayed by a lack of necessary information about medicinal plants. Pharmacognosy Network Worldwide (Phcog.Net) - A Platform for Natural Product Researchers was created to combat these problems. It makes innovative use of the best tools for information dissemination to overcome the hurdles to Natural Product Research. Pharmacognosy Network Worldwide is a non-profit network dedicated to Natural Products Research in order to develop promising drugs.
"Our main vision is to bring medicinal plants researchers together in a single platform and to address the issues related to medicinal plants and pharmacognosy."
