website20180314 170635

The Post-doctoral project involves valorising some formulated SG phytoproducts, a medicinal plant which is traditionally used in Tanzania for treatment of some human and animal diseases.  Her project arises from patents she obtained during her PhD on antimicrobial, antiviral and antifungal capacity of the extracts from the plant. Through this project, the products which are Syna soap, Syna syrup and Syna cream will be studied. In order to add value of these products the mixed compounds that contribute to their activity against Skin fungal infections and coughing will be identified and tested for their proper doses. This will contribute to proper labelling and packaging, which will build more confidence to customers when buying the products.
