An independent study that aimed to screen medicinal plants for the presence of antidiabetic compounds. Optimized a large number of in vitro procedures, making the screening process extremely efficient and high-throughput in nature. I was able to screen 64 plant extracts simultaneously as opposed to the existing 4 plant extracts at one time. During the course of this project, we found a novel antidiabetic principle that I subsequently tested in adult male Wistar rats.
