Description: The April installment of the NIH Environmental Management System Green Hour Seminar Series

Did you know that the Earth's biological diversity includes almost 350,000 species of plants and at least one million species of fungi and that many of these could be sources of cures for today's devastating diseases? Dr. David Newman, Chief of National Cancer Institute's Natural Products Branch, will discuss how the 60,000 plant samples and 15,000 marine samples that his team has collected worldwide have led to drug discoveries, including medications to treat HIV and tumors. Come learn about the importance of protecting the world's biodiversity.
