Plants have been used medicinally for thousands of years and are sources for many modern medicines. Following a history of plant use in medicine we will examine how plant chemicals such as alkaloids and essential oils alleviate symptoms and help cure disease. Includes a visit to the Cambridge Botanic Garden (1.7km, c.25 mins walk, or c.20mins bus).
