Thesis title: "Natural products against acute respiratory infections"

Thesis outline: The aim of my work is to identify natural products against acute respiratory infections triggered by e. g. influenza A virus, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 and Streptococcus pneumoniae which is sponsored by FWF (P34028). Therefore, chemoinformatic methods, ethnopharmacobotanical knowledge and phenotypic extract screening should help to achieve this goal. In addition, big data analysis i. e. molecular networks and biochemometry combined with state-of-the-art separation techniques are used to elucidate novel lead structures derived by natural sources.
