Cientistas salvam corais após tempestades e pedem a sua ajuda
Investigadores do Centro de Ciências do Mar (CCMAR) estão a recolher um tipo de corais chamados gorgónias, que deram à costa após as recentes tempestades, para as transplantar de volta ao seu habitat natural.
CCMAR é o único parceiro português em dois projetos europeus de Aquacultura
O Centro de Ciências do Mar (CCMAR) é parceiro em dois grandes projetos, financiados pela União Europeia, através de fundos H2020, o PerformFISH e o MedAID. Ambos os projetos serão desenvolvidos por equipas do CCMAR, durante os próximos anos.
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.
The overall research strategy of FBP is driven primarily by the need to translate strong basic science into clinically relevant advances and promoting transfer of technology, based on the integration of high quality multi-disciplinary academic, researcher and clinical activity with a strong focus on translational research.
Development of heterocyclic compounds applicable in medicine, environmental remediation or aquaculture. Investigation of structure, reactivity and activity of compounds obtained from synthesis or natural sources.
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.
The main aim of the group is study the role of hormones and their metabolites on physiology and the evolution of the endocrine system, using fish as the principal model together with other key invertebrate and vertebrate models.
