Project presentation

The proposed project aims to exploit the natural substances of the French Guyana rainforest. Targeting molecules of interest will be made based on “old” approaches, ie ethnopharmacology, but also by relying on more advanced approaches such as bio-inspiration. Natural substances will be investigated for their biological activities (including antimalarial and antileishmanial), insecticides (mosquitoes and termites )but also for their activity in the defense mechanisms of sustainable wood. The evaluation of these different properties as well as the structural identification will be performed at UMR Ecofog and ICSN laboratories.
