The lab's research activities are focused in five major lines:



- in vitro mass propagation of plant species with economic and pharmacological interest


- use of biotechnological approaches towards the germplasm preservation of endangered plant species


- plant response to abiotic stress and study of tolerance mechanisms


- structural elucidation of bioactive plant extract components using hyphenated analytical techniques


- test plant extracts against biological targets to discover lead compounds relevant in the research of human diseases
