Natural Products Scientific Interest Group
The Natural Products Scientific Interest Group was created to bring interested NIH program officials and intramural investigators together. The group will meet periodically to discuss recent advances and hear from invited experts.
Natural products refer to a chemical substance produced by a living organism, most notably marine invertebrates, plants, fungi, and bacteria that have distinctive pharmacological effects. Single chemical entities as well as their mixtures in natural product extracts, have a long history of use as drugs, drug precursors, and/or complementary health adjuvants. Such materials have provided the source or inspiration for a vast number of FDA-approved agents and continue to be one of the major sources of inspiration for drug discovery.
