Talk centers on plants that may lead to cures

Searching for plants that will lead to curing diseases has kept Paul Alan Cox traveling the world, protecting rain forests and coral reefs and studying patterns of wellness and disease among indigenous peoples. Cox, a renowned ethnobotanist, will talk about his work at UNR on March 10.

Cox is the director of the Institute for Ethnomedicine in Jackson Hole, Wyo. His current ethnobotanical research is focused on neurodegenerative illness with the goal of discovering new therapies for ALS and Alzheimer’s disease.


The free lecture will be at 7pm in the Redfield Auditorium in the Davidson Mathematics and Science Center on the university campus.
