You will also learn about the history of discovering a new treatment for the malaria epidemic in the last century, and the story of its owner being awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine.

You also learn about the different types of research and the difference between them, such as research on naked cells in laboratories, research on mice and experimental animals, research on patients, and finally, aggregated statistical research.

Then you will move on to the basic stage of this course, which is to identify the recent research of various herbs that have succeeded in reducing the deterioration of the cases of patients with the emerging corona virus.
