Zingiberaceae collaborative research group (ZCRG)

Dear Colleagues,


We are putting together consortium of individuals and organizations (academia, industry) to promote the research on Zingiberaceae plants (including ginger, turmeric, cardamom) and their bioactivities.


Collaborative work focuses on experimental research on extracts and isolated compounds from Zingiberaceae plants, joint applications for research funding, and the preparation of diverse types of scientific publications.


If you would like to join our ZCRG consortium, please fill-in the respective Contact Form and return it to me by email to Atanas.Atanasov@dhps.lbg.ac.at


With many thanks and best wishes,
