Our research focuses on the discovery and development of natural products from marine microbes. We have capabilities in all areas of natural products chemistry and microbiology.  Services focus on liquid chromatography - mass spectrometry (specifically UPLC-HRMS and HRMS/MS) and application of a related metabolomics platform.  We can also conduct purification and structure elucidation of active compounds identified in screening programs.  Lastly, we can conduct antimicrobial assays for a range of bacterial and fungal pathogens.
