Dr Solomon Habtemariam is a leading expert on drug discovery researches from natural sources. By using ethno-botanical information and bioassay-guided isolation studies, Dr Habtemariam's research has identified several classes of bioactive compounds. His in-house bioassay screens and expertise areas include:
Hand-in-hand with the above-mentioned pharmacological assays, Dr Habtemariam uses chromatographic and spectroscopic analysis methods for standardising herbal products, i.e. he provides the scientific bases of traditional medicines through both chemical and pharmacological assays.
