Chicago’s Only Medicinal Garden Adds Therapeutic Touch to Local Research

Catharanthus roseus

Cars. Construction. Pollution. And a garden. Blossoming at the University of Illinois at Chicago is the city’s first and only urban medicinal garden.

The Dorothy Bradley Atkins Medicinal Garden has been a project of the UIC College of Pharmacy since 1999. Each plant has compounds known to alleviate a variety of sicknesses and symptoms.
