NCNPR Director Named Honorary Member Of Pharmacognosy Society

Ikhlas Khan
Ikhlas Khan, director of the National Center for Natural Products Research at the University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy, has been named an honorary member of the American Society of Pharmacognosy.
Pharmacognosy, the study of medicinal drugs made from plants and other natural sources, is at the heart of Khan’s more-than-25-year career at the natural products center. Honorary membership signifies the society’s appreciation of Khan’s deep and continued involvement in promoting its mission of advancing the growth and development of pharmacognosy.
“I am very honored to be recognized in this way,” Khan said. “I have enjoyed being a part of the ASP’s community for many years and am pleased to be able to be able to represent the society.”
The ASP offers honorary memberships sporadically, doing so only when an individual has gone above and beyond to serve the organization. Besides contributing to the society’s leadership, the NCNPR and the ASP have co-hosted annual meetings that bring together members of the pharmacognosy community.
“Honorary memberships are reserved for individuals who make tremendous contributions to the society,” said David D. Allen, Ole Miss pharmacy dean. “I couldn’t be prouder of the work Ikhlas has done to be recognized with such an honor.”
Khan was officially inducted to the ASP at a banquet Aug. 3 in Portland, Oregon.
