IMMUNE AND MOLECULAR THERAPEUTICS
This programme is responsible for the development of high-throughput screening assays using cell-free, cell-based and whole organism model systems in order to serve as platforms to interrogate the small molecules prepared from Natural and Synthetic Products research programme.
A vast number of marine resources can convert simple substrates into products that the organisms need for growth and survival. One of the main tasks is to carry out sustainable collection and identification of marine microorganisms with vast potentials for the production of secondary metabolites as drug candidates.
The Bioinformatics Programme is committed to the development and utilization of novel computational approaches to help solve important biological problems, and to provide training in the science and technology that underlies them.
