NMSU Medicinal Plant Workshop

Lab assistance measuring growth in pertri dish

NMSU's Medicinal Plants of the Southwest (MPSW), funded by the National Institute of Health, strives to increase the number of minority students pursuing and obtaining advanced degrees in the biomedical sciences. It gives students a chance to explore their natural world. By studying native plants, students learn how field and laboratory science can strengthen their academic skills and expand their career opportunities.

Students have the opportunity to participate in summer workshops and academic year activities. The students gain hands-on experience while learning about herbal preparations, proper storage protocol, and the use of advanced lab equipment.
