UNCG photo by David Wilson - 3/30/2010 - Dr. Nicholas Oberlies and Dr. Cedric Pearce look at a tray full of fungal samples at Mycosynthetix, located in Hillsborough, one of the world's largest libraries of fungal specimens.  Oberlies, a newly hired associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry, is a self-described "natural prodicts guy" - a chemist who looks for bioactive compounds that come directly from nature and have specific pharmaceutical value.
