Nature’s Pharmacy (Collections Case)

Stop by the Collections Case display in the museum’s main atrium, behind the mastodons, to see Nature’s Pharmacy.

August 2023–July 2024

Plants and fungi play a vital role in medicine due to the diversity of chemical defense mechanisms they evolved to safeguard them against pathogens, herbivores, and competitors. From its inception, the U-M Herbarium has cataloged and described plants—both poisonous and beneficial to human health—and still serves that role today. See specimens of these plant and fungal “friends” and “foes” from the U-M Herbarium collection and learn about how the collection is used for drug discovery today.
