Strategic Focus

Our group consists of professionals in chemistry, pharmaceutics, biology, and other closely related disciplines. It aims to develop research projects on the chemistry, biology, and biological activity of Colombian marine natural resources by establishing agreements and networks with other institutions and research groups.          

We aim to constitute, along with other Colombian research groups, a research network on marine natural products.

We seek to participate in academic, scientific, and community outreach events.

Research Areas and Topics

  • Marine antiparasitics.
  • Development of analytical methodologies.
  • Organic hemisynthesis.
  • Functional natural products.
  • Marine antimicrobial natural products.
  • Chemistry and biological activity of marine natural products.
