Wild Medicine

Thursday 15 March 2018 19:00 - Thursday 15 March 2018 21:00

Discover how modern medicine owes a great debt to plants and botany in this illustrated talk.

This is a evening lecture on Thursday 15 March (7-9pm), , held at the University's main campus in Liverpool.

Join Ness's Botanist Tim Baxter to explore the value of plants to modern medicine. Plants exploited by ancient apothecaries have given rise to more complex and effective cures used today. Compounds isolated from natural herbs have found their way into quarter of all the neat little pills people get from the pharmacy today.

This is the third of four lectures in a new Horticulture & Botany Series delivered by Ness Botanic Gardens staff at the University of Liverpool's main campus. In addition, there are two one day courses offer practical gardening and design advice. Details can be found here.
