Aquatic Organisms from Molecule to Ecossystem
At CCMAR, we aim to provide solutions to tackle the challenges posed by environmental changes to marine ecosystems. These solutions include ensuring a sustainable use of marine resources and minimizing environmental costs and waste. To achieve this, we develop transdisciplinary research that devises and characterizes unique models from marine ecosystems that have intrinsic value in the context of blue growth.
We survey molecules and organisms from normal and extreme marine environments to explore their biotechnology potential. By developing and applying innovative technologies, we can use these marine models as tools for hazard assessment, as sources of bioactive compounds or biomaterials and as unique models for biomedicine.
