Department of
Pharmacognosy and
Pharmaceutical Botany
The Department of Pharmacognosy and
Pharmaceutical Botany has a long history of academic
excellence and strong reputation in preparing
graduates for research in the field of chemistry and
biotechnology in natural products. Prior to the
merging in 2008, the Department was known as two
separate Departments of Pharmacognosy and
Pharmaceutical Botany. Currently, apart from teaching
over 300 undergraduate pharmacy students each year,
the Depar tment offers graduate programs in
Pharmaconosy and Pharmaceutical Botany, leading to
the degrees of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) and
Master of Science (M.Sc.).

Major Research Areas


Bioactive compounds from
plants and marine organisms

Chulalongkorn University
The Department boasts top-ranked graduate
programs in natural products and herbal medicine in
Thailand. During the past 50 years, we have produced
a number of highly qualified researchers and scientists
to serve in government agencies, academic institution
and research organizations. Today, our alumni span all
ages and all parts of the nation. Our former students
have been successful in a wide range of chosen careers
in both the government and the private sectors.
Se veral of them ha ve been national l y and/or
internationally recognized as scholars and leaders in
the field of natural products.

Computational-aided drug
design and semi-synthesis
Biosynthesis and biotechnology of bioactive secondary
metabolites
Medicinal plant identification
by molecular biological
techniques
Plant-based vaccine research

Since most of our research projects are


extremely funded, our Ph.D. students are usually
oered financial supports in the form of teaching or
research assistantships, in addition to tuition fees.
