The Centre for Scientific Research into Plant Medicine (CSRPM) was established in 1975 by the Government of Ghana in recognition of the pioneering work of Dr. Oku Ampofo, a Ghanaian allopathic medical practitioner. Today, CSRPM has become a leading research institution in Africa that has made Research and Development of herbal medicines its core business.Our objective is to make significant contribution to healthcare through quality research in order to realize our vision “ to make herbal medicine a natural choice for all ”
An increasing number of people, both locally and worldwide, are turning to the use of natural medicine, particularly herbal medicine, to address their healthcare needs. It is important for these people and for the general good, that they receive the best available care. It is in this regard that the Center for Plant Medicine Research has been mandated to lead the effort to make herbal medicine acceptable to all.
By a new act in parliament, the CENTRE FOR SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH INTO PLANT MEDICINE (CSRPM) is now CENTRE FOR PLANT MEDICINE RESEARCH (CPMR)
We exist to ensure that the highest standards are applied to the research and development of plant medicine. We do not believe that science and natural medicine exist in different paradigms. Among others, we seek to, and do, subject plant medicine to rigorous phytochemical, pharmacological, toxicological and microbiological analyses.
Our interests go beyond research. We are unique in our ability to effectively link research with product development. We possess an impressive array of products (which can be seen on this site) which we have subjected to safety and efficacy tests.
Our clinic stands as a model for the effective combination of the principles of modern diagnosis and natural, holistic healthcare.
We welcome the co-operation of all individual and organizations in making herbal medicine a natural choice for all.
