Drug Discovery from the Marine Environment

October 3, 2017 7:00pm to 8:00pm iCal Google Calendar

Presented by Dr. Russell Hill

For more than half a century, scientists have been exploring the marine environment to find new drugs.  Some groups of marine organisms, in particular sponges, have been prolific sources of new bioactive compounds. The marine environment has provided us with new drugs, including anti-cancer drugs, analgesics and antibiotics. Dr. Hill will give an overview of the drug discovery process and talk about some important new drugs from the marine environment, including promising compounds that are still in the “discovery pipeline.”
