Marine natural product projects session at European MaNaPro Conference 2023
A two-hour session dedicated to EU-funded marine natural product related projects will take place on Tuesday 5 September at the XIII European Conference on Marine Natural Products (MaNaPro) and XVII International Symposium on Marine Natural Products Joint Meeting in Granada, Spain. The conference chaired by MARBLES partner Fernando Reyes (MEDINA) is taking place from 3-8 September 2023.
AIMS is a cluster of four research projects funded under the Call ‘FNR-11-2020: Prospecting aquatics and terrestrial natural biological resources for biologically active compounds.’ The four projects are Algae4IBD, InnCoCells, MARBLES and SECRETed (AIMS). Working together towards common goals, the cluster is exploring common challenges, activities and optimising synergies by means of working groups, workshops and meetings as well as data sharing and overall collaboration. As Algae4IBD, MARBLES and SECRETed are focussed on marine sources of natural products, they will be involved and present their common challenges and have open discussions during the Session on Horizon Europe Funded Projects on Tuesday 5 September at 9am.
Several other MARBLES researchers are participating in the conference including:
- On Monday 4 September, as part of Session 1 Drug Discovery and Development, at 17:15 Marcel Jaspars (UNIABDN) is organising the Session on Marine Policy.
- On Tuesday 5 September, as part of Session 3 Chemical Ecology and Ecosystems Functioning, at 14:40 Detmer Sipkema (WUR) will present ‘The biosynthetic landscape of marine sponge microbiomes’. He is followed by Lina Bayona (ULEI) presenting her research at 15:20.
- On Wednesday 6 September, as part of Session 4 Natural Products Isolation and Structural Elucidation, at 10:25 Emmanuel Tope Oluwabusola (UNIABDN) will present his research.
- On Thursday 7 September, as part of Session 7 Metabolomics Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Applied to MNP Research, at 15:40 Mitja M. Zdouc (WUR) will present his research.
