Inspiring innovation from tradition

From the digital files in the Art of Healing Collection, the researchers in the Institute extract the information on the therapeutic uses of natural substances and store them in sets of computerized tables. Raw material from ancient documentation is complemented with metadata rigorously interpreted in a transdisciplinary way, contributing to a unique resource for further research: the Materia Medica Database.
