Claire Laurant is an ethnobotanist with a PhD in Anthropology from Paris III La Sorbonne-Nouvelle. She dedicated her thesis to the therapeutic praxis of traditional midwives from the Altiplano Central area of Mexico. She is presently pursuing her research in the framework of a project for the Ethnobotanical Garden of Cuernavaca Morelos.
Complementary training in toxicology, botanics and homeopathy brought her to Sevene Laboratory as our scientific collaborator – she takes part in the formulation of herbal medicinal drugs, and lends her expertise in scientific rationale and justification from tradition, pharmacology and toxicology.
She is the author of numerous articles on ethnobotany and herbal medicine, as well as a compendium of herbal teas. She is a consultant in ethnobotany, and manages phyto-herbalist training sessions, gives presentations, and coordinates courses for the introduction to and education about projects concerning the uses of herbal medicine.
