"Discovery of new natural compounds useful as drugs." (2007-2008).
Funding: € 1,987,673.40.


The aim is the discovery and development of molecules frommicrobial origin as drug candidates for the treatment of various human diseases. Marine organisms, are collected and crushedfor the isolation of microorganisms asociated to them Those microorganisms are culture and their extracts obtained and test on multiple assays (cellular, enzymatic, etc.), to purify  the active ingredient responsible of the detected activity and to analyze the therapeutic window where it may be applied.
