Discovering Natural Chemicals For Consumer Products, Medicine, And Beyond

Dr. Ben Naman from UCSD/Scripps Institute of Oceanography will discuss how various natural products can be used to improve human wellness.

We are truly surrounded by chemicals – in the air that we breathe and the food that we eat, are added to foods, consumer product goods, and define our system of medicine. Dr. Naman will examine the ways that researchers study the chemistry of our natural environment, in sources ranging from essential oils to dietary supplements and from domestic or tropical plants to algae and bacteria in the ocean.

*This event is part of the San Diego Wetlab’s citizen science lecture series held every first Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at the La Jolla Library and every third Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the Downtown Library.
