Natural Products from Marine Fungi for the treatment of cancer


The MarineFungi consortium demonstrated the sustainable exploitation of marine natural resources providing appropriate culture conditions. New anti cancer compounds are now  characterised to the stage of in vivo proof of concept ready to enter further drug development. Read more about our approach and background by choosing the approriate section in the pull down menue on top of the page.

We developed the technological basis for a sustainable use of marine microbial products along the added-value chain from the marine habitat to the drug candidate and process concept. Find our publications.

The project MARINE FUNGI was from May 2011-April 2014. The consortium continues the work and will use this site to share results and insights and the development of marine biotechnology. See our partners in the PARTNER menue.

Last official day of the MARINE FUNGI project

After three years of MARINE FUNGI project time (starting much earlier with the proposal and the negotiation) we finally reached our last day within the project. This is a sad occasion as well as a moment for joy about the success and the expectation about the things to be come.

We will continue information via this site - so stay in touch.

reporting is now under way

Our End User Conference was the last public presentation of our consortium as a whole with all our findings and our outlook. Now everybody is busy with last experiments and the reporting.
