Ocean Medicines

Start date: 01 Dec 2015, End date: 30 Nov 2019,

Marine organisms have the capacity to produce a variety of biologically potent natural products. Such novel molecules have new mechanisms of action and therefore could be used to treat human diseases and enhance the quality of life, especially in the ageing segment of the population. However, although there is growing interest in marine natural products (MNP) as potential therapeutic agents for hu ...

Ocean acidification (OA) is expected to profoundly alter the diversity and function of marine ecosystems, as well as the services they provide to society. Thus, understanding how future oceans will function in the face of OA represents one of the major challenges and needs for marine science and management. However, most of the studies to date on OA have consisted of short- to medium- timescale la ...

Marine (blue) biotechnology is the key to unlocking the huge economic potential of the unique biodiversity of marine organisms. This potential remains largely underexploited due to lack of connectivity between research services, practical and cultural difficulties in connecting science with industry, and high fragmentation of regional research, development and innovation (RDI) policies. To overcom ...

Diatoms carry out 1/5 of the photosynthesis on Earth and are essential to aquatic ecosystems. In addition to their fundamental role in carbon fixation, they play a key role in the biogeochemical cycle of nitrate and silica, have other complex metabolic abilities (urea cycle, fatty acid metabolism) and developed several strategies for the adaptation to different, sometimes extreme, environments. An ...
