There are five kinds of medicine generations in Indonesia: traditional medicine or jamu, synthetic medicine, antibiotic medicine, proteomic genomic and stem cell as the latest one. Syahrani is one of experts in synthetic medicine in UNAIR. Development of synthetic medicine started from traditional medication which no longer satisfied human needs. Then, the development in Chemistry occurred, which causing invention of artificial drug materials called synthesis. Then, synthetic medicine was massively manufactured. Of plant biosynthesis process, Syahrani took plant cell grown in cell culture, then changed it into chemical compound. This, plant could produce primary and secondary metabolites in form of carbohydrate, fat, and protein. The prospect of Syahranis research area is promising because many plants in Indonesia have structures for difficult medicine materials. Let alone, Indonesia is a country with the richest biodiversity in the world. Hence, many plants have not been studied by researchers.
