The Natural Chemotherapeutics Research Laboratory

The Natural Chemotherapeutics Research Laboratory is a government research and development centre under the Ministry of Health (MoH). It was created in 1964 with the mandate to carry out applied research on natural products (plants, animal parts and minerals) with the view of justifying therapeutic claims from traditional medicine practitioners in Uganda.

The centre undertakes the development of quality natural products and services for improved health care delivery by applying both indigenous and modern technologies. NCRL is constituted of a multidisciplinary research team of skilled and technical scientists. This team, in collaboration with other partners and stakeholders, ensures that the centre fulfils its mandate to coordinate research and development on traditional medicine.
