Main research activities:
Marbios focus is discovery of bioactive compounds from marine organisms. The main activities are screening crude extracts/fractions for different bioactivities and performing bioassay-guided purification to isolate active compounds and hence build up a library of natural products. We explore Arctic and sub-Arctic marine organisms, searching for compounds with activities against bacteria, cancer and diabetes as well as compounds with immunomodulatory and antioxidative effects.
