Professor emeritus Karl Egil Malterud
Malterud graduated from the Norwegian Technical University (NTH – name later changed to NTNU) in 1970.
He has been at the School of Pharmacy, University of Oslo, since 1980.
His research has mainly dealt with polyphenolic natural products: isolation, purification and structure elucidation, as well as studies on biological activity. These studies have mostly been focused on in vitro antioxidant properties such as radical scavenging and inhibition of peroxidative enzymes.
During the last decade, most of his research projects have been related to studies of medicinal plants in Bangladesh, Mali and South Africa. Collaboration with scientists in these countries is very important for this work.
Several Ph.D. and M.Sc. degrees have been awarded to scientists working on these projects in Malterud´s research group, and a number of peer-reviewed papers in international journals and contributions to national and international conferences have been published.
Karl Egil Malterud is professor emeritus in Pharmacognosy at the School of Pharmacy, University of Oslo, and has published ca. 70 articles in peer-reviewed international journals.
