Using fungi to search for medical drugs

An enormous library of products derived from more than ten thousand fungi could help us find new drugs. Researchers from the group of Jeroen den Hertog at the Hubrecht Institute, in collaboration with researchers from the Westerdijk Institute and Utrecht University, have set up this library and screened it for biologically active compounds.

The results of this research were published on the 26th of November in the scientific journal Scientific Reports.
