Organic molecules in natural waters can help us to understand the global cycling of biologically important elements like carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus.
Marine Chemical Biology and Biotechnology
The interface between marine chemistry and marine biology, ranging from natural products chemistry and biotechnology to biogeochemistry and biochemistry relating to marine systems. Many of our researchers in this field work for the Center for Marine Biotechnology and Biomedicine (CMBB).
Centers, Labs, and Programs
CAICE is a Center for Chemical Innovation focused on the fundamental chemistry behind the impact of aerosol particles on our climate.
Research programs focus on marine biomedicine and marine drug discovery, with an emphasis on cancer and both infectious and inflammatory diseases.
Studying color and biological light in nature through their various forms and functions.
Focused on the biosynthesis and bioengineering of marine microbial natural products and in the discovery of new enzyme biocatalysts.
