The research focus of CeMaCE is marine chemical ecology, that is, how naturally occurring substances (secondary metabolites or natural products) affect interactions between marine organisms. Chemical communication and chemical signaling are fundamental processes for all marine organisms. Knowledge of the chemical structure and bioactivity of natural products increases our understanding of biological interactions and their effects on marine ecosystems both in the short- and long-term.

Research within CeMaCE has over the past two years had a growing element of applications within "Blue Biotech" and cultivation of seaweeds, where a number of projects have been initiated in collaboration with researchers from Swedish and foreign universities. Several different companies, government bodies, and NGOs are included as interaction partners in these projects.
