SELECTION OF RESEARCH PROJECTS

Research projects should be selected with due consideration for several factors in addition to scientific interest. Three of these are:

(1) potential value of the research results for improving the health of the community with due regard to the prevalence of disease and the feasibility of using alternative treatments;

(2) the medical value of indigenous plants;

(3) technical and financial considerations.
