The Universidad Nacional Agraria de la Selva is located at the west central part of the Peruvian Amazon region, at 630 masl, it has a 24.8°C average annual temperature, 3293 mm annual rainfall and 80% relative humidity. These environmental conditions make this region favorable to grow a rich biodiversity of native plants containing a variety of bioactive compounds with potential use for improving animal welfare and production. This institution has been currently implemented with powerful equipment for research such as Raman spectrometer, HPLC-MS spectrometer, UV spectrometer, NIR spectrometer, FL spectrometer, ICP-OES spectrometer, AAS analyzer and trained technical personal for this equipment. Our research team conformed by researchers in animal and veterinary Science and Pharmacy is starting to explore finding bioactive compounds from the native plants from this region for applied research in improving animal welfare, health, and production. However, there is not local researchers working in finding these compounds for collaborative work and local research funding entities are short in funds. Therefore, our research team is searching collaborative work with researchers and funding entities abroad, for achieving our joint purposes.
