Dr. Milligan’s research interest is in organic synthetic methods
development. Specifically, he is interested in the development
of “green” reagents and techniques to replace traditional
methods which have proved to be environmentally problematic. Dr.

Biology Department to isolate and identify active principles of
traditional native plant remedies.
