Discovery of Bioactive Marine Natural Products

https://mc.pharmacy.ufl.edu/research/faculty-research-areas/marine-natural-products-drug-discovery-and-development/discovery-of-bioactive-marine-natural-products/

Approximately half of all current drugs are derived from natural products, demonstrating their potential for drug discovery. The structural diversity and biological activity displayed by natural products may be attributed to a long evolutionary selection process. In our quest for small molecules with biomedical utility for various disease indications we mainly investigate natural products. In...
