Dr. Ciesla awarded NSF grant to study a novel magnetic separation method to isolate compounds for drug discovery

Natural products are rich in biologically active (bioactive) compounds and serve as great sources for drug discovery. One of the major challenges in screening drug leads from natural products is the lack of effective tools to identify and separate the bioactive compounds. This project with PI Dr. Yuping Baio (CBE) will develop and characterize a […]
