Description 

The Marine Biotechnology research group is currently ongoing active research in different fields of microalgal biotechnology, as well as in the exploitation of different marine organisms as sources of novel bioactive compounds. In addition, the group uses structure-based design for lead optimisation with the final goal of obtaining novel drugs to fight human and animal disease.

Description 

Fishing and fishing related activities are of considerable importance in the Algarve (southern Portugal), which is the Portuguese region with the highest percentage of the working population directly or indirectly involved in fisheries. The main objectives of the group are to contribute to the improved management and sustainable exploitation of the multi-species resources of the Algarve coastal waters. In recent years, the fisheries sector has been under considerable pressure, with a decline in landings of many of the most important species.

OC2 objective is to provide well-anchored basic and integrated knowledge of the present-day oceanic processes at the regional scale, as well as to investigate their response to past global warm climate conditions.

Coordinator 
Description 

Our aim is to investigate the processes that regulate marine plant production at different organizational levels: molecular, plant, community and ecosystem. Knowledge on these processes is instrumental to understand the role of marine vegetation in the structure and functioning of coastal systems and to assess the impacts of human-induced disturbances including climate change. Our scientific output is expected to contribute to the valuation, management and conservation of the ecological services of vegetated coastal systems.

Description 

The Molecular Biophysics and Bioengineering (MBB) research group integrates a range of cross-disciplinary expertise that focuses on the integration of biology with biophysics and bioengineering. Specifically the MBB group is actively developing improved strategies to study and control cellular functions and biomolecules, to develop optimized molecules, processes and procedures that will lead to enhanced therapeutics, more effective diagnostic devices and molecular markers. The MBB group also incorporates a number of broader areas including chemistry and physics to complement and enhance the bioengineering and biophysics fields, particularly within the biomedical science area.
