NATURAL PRODUCTS RESEARCH CHEMISTRY DEPARTMENT, MAKERERE UNIVERSITY 1 MAJOR RUNNING THEME SINCE 1998 BIOPROSPECTING FOR FLAVONOIDS IN UGANDAN FLORA Main collaborator: Prof. yvind Andersen University of by Bergen,Norway

The focus has been guided the following questions: Have plants been used locally for medicinal purposes? Have plants been researched for flavonoid content before? Are the flavonoids observed in a preliminary screening new compounds or not? Are the plants or plant parts edible 2 Current Research Team

MoU with PROMETRA Uganda, process completed MoU with MUMETHA, on-going 17 CONTRIBUTION Capacity building in terms human resource several graduates from Natural products Completed: 4PhDs, 14MSc Ongoing: 5PhDs, 3MSc Contribution to science knowledge/flavoinoid chemistry 30 novel compounds have been characterized

together with several known compounds. HPLC, GC-MS, Small equipments for isolation of natural products. 18 FUTURE PROJECTS Improvement of Selected Anti-malarial Herbal Medicines Through Identification of Bioactive Compounds and Development of Standardised Formulation Methods Development of Antioxidants and Flavonoids as food supplements from indigenous plant sources The Potential of Natural Dyes from Selected Indigenous Dye-Yielding Plants as Substitutes

for Synthetic Dyes. Pesticide properties of Plants and Their Potential in Crop Disease Control 19 SIDA phase IV Concept was submitted based on the four topics in our future projects PI on the concept is Assoc. Prof. whom Prof. Kiremire has mentored through the previous Projects Required assistance. possible collaborators from SWEDEN on the above areas of natural products

20 CHALLENGES FUNDING Lack of local funding from University or Government, and this sometimes creates discontinuity when the project ends and you have no other project. EQUIPMENT Research funding usually not enough to buy big equipment vital in Natural products research such as MS and NMR. Much reliance on collaboration in order to use large equipments. 21
