Ocean Medicine

H2020 – MSCA – RISE: OCEAN MEDICINES (9 partners, 4 years project)

Ocean Medicines is a network of academic, research centres and SMEs across Europe, with proven experience in higher education, training and endowed with state of the art scientific and technical expertise and infrastructures. Our aim is to establish a network of collaboration and knowledge- exchange between industrial and academic partners to further develop lead compounds from marine microorganisms having anticancer or anti-infective effects that have already been identified by the consortium. To achieve this goal a mobility programme will be set up to prepare a new generation of marine biodiscovery scientists that will be trained on how to isolate compounds from bioactive bacteria/microalgae and take these through to semi-industrial scale-up for further development and toxicity testing at the pre-clinical level.
