Marine-inspired bioactive molecules: from the sea to the patients 2016-05-10 20:49:19
The search for new drugs for treating diseases has been constant in human history. In recent years, the sea has shown to be a promising source of new drugs. This project aims to learn from the chemical diversity of marine-derived molecules of the Atlantic region as a strategy to produce new and sustainable medicines for human use.
In order to contribute to the conservation of resources, we will select the most promising molecules to be produced, chemically tailored and improved in the laboratory, thus avoiding the overuse of marine organisms.
