Discovery and/or application of natural products to chemotherapy applications
The Center for Natural Product Research (CNPR) Program of WV-INBRE is announcing a Request for Applications for WV-INBRE network investigators to conduct pilot research on projects related to the discovery and/or application of natural products to chemotherapy applications. These pilot projects can focus on discovery of potentially new chemotherapeutic agents, mechanistic studies to understand how newer chemotherapeutic agents produce their effects, combination chemotherapies utilizing natural products with other chemotherapeutic agents to increase effectiveness or reduce toxicity, and other related studies. Preference will be given to studies that focus on cancer chemotherapy, but meritorious antimicrobial chemotherapy directed studies will also be considered. Proposed research should not overlap with other funded research projects.
