I want to deepen my understanding and contribute to the progression of traditional medicines. I want this because I was always curious about the science behind Jamu (traditional Indonesian medicines) since my childhood. I can do this because I have a strong background in natural product research, an extensive network in this field and a local perspective as someone who has consumed them since childhood and understand their impact on health.
