We are...

... a bunch of people driven by our curiosity of if, how and why organisms communicate with chemical signals. We are also interested in how these bioactive signals works and if we can use them or mimic them for our own purposes, e.g. for new type of medicines, fuels and anti-fouling substances.

We are convinced that we can performe better and reach further working together - and it is fun, both for us and our students.

We work with all kinds of marine organisms, from bacteria, micro and macro algae and invertebrates.

Research topics 

  • Mechanisms and ecological significance of chemical defences and signals in marine organisms
  • Multitrophic interactions mediated by secondary metabolites
  • Abiotic factors and their effect on production of secondary metabolites
  • Hydrodynamics and the effect of flow on chemically mediated interactions
  • Chemical interactions within plankton communities

Our joint research profile is multidisciplinary, integrating ecology with chemistry, biohydrodynamics and molecular biology.

We come from four different universities contributing with different skills and angels (interests). Marine ecology, molecular biology and biohydrodynamics from University of Gothenburg, medical chemistry and pharmacognosy from University of Uppsala, industrial biotechnology from Chalmers University of Technology and natural product chemistry from Georgia Institute of Technology.
