 Discovering Medicinal Plants


​In the Arab world, folk medicine and alchemy have a long history of pulling on the powers of the plant kingdom to create medicines. Benefitting from the medicinal power of diverse plants and unleashing its conservation potential, requires scientific research,​ and validation of medicinal usages.

Since our inception, AUB-NCC has been discovering the medicinal benefits of  plants and conducting outreach to build the conservation value of the ecosystems that plants call home. We are showing why medicinal plant discovery is one of the best ways to foster a practical understanding for how biodiversity matters.
