Marine Bioactive Compounds and Health

Biological functions of natural dietary molecules derived from marine resources in health promotion and disease prevention. Research interest includes identifying marine-derived bioactive compounds with beneficial effects in obesity and associated metabolic syndrome focusing on the regulation of lipid metabolism and inflammation in adipose tissue; uncovering potential health value of seafood materials and underutilized aquatic resources to promote efficient utilization of the harvested resources.  

This facility supports Tissue Culture work with marine-derived bioactive compounds.
