Oberlies Research Group

The Oberlies Research Group 

The Oberlies Research Group studies bioactive compounds from nature, largely from the viewpoint of natural products chemistry. We isolate and characterize bioactive compounds from fungi, bacteria, and plants, every single day. All of our projects take a team oriented approach, collaborating with scientists in diverse disciplines, including pharmacology, virology, ecology, and metabolism, to name only a few, such that we are focused on revealing the biological potential of compounds from nature.
