Even in the 21st century, we are only beginning to realize that plants from the Alberta prairies might contain chemicals of scientific or medical importance. Many of these plants will be familiar to the naturalists of Lethbridge and to members of local First Nations. The Natural Product Laboratory at the University of Lethbridge is discovering new information about the chemicals that are present in these hardy and beautiful prairie plants.
Join Associate Professor of Biology and Alberta Ingenuity Faculty member at the University of Lethbridge Dr. Roy Golsteyn for an intriguing look at some of the plants in Southern Alberta that have remarkable potential.
