FEFU opened the training of specialists in the development of drugs from marine organisms

Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) is launching a new educational program to train specialists in the field of biomedicine, the press service of the university reported.

The discipline "Medical chemistry" is designed for five years of study. "During this time, students will learn to isolate biologically active compounds from natural sources, synthesize their analogues and explore the effect at the molecular level," - said in a statement. Specialists will be trained with the assistance of scientists from the Pacific Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (TIBOH of the Far East Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences). It is assumed that the students will practice at the marine experimental station TIBOH in the south of Primorye, participate in scientific expeditions and work in laboratories.

As reported, scientists of the Far East have developed a number of new products from algae and marine organisms. Numerous new biologically active substances with antimicrobial and antitumor properties have been studied. Thus, a substance against gastric ulcer was obtained from the shells of crabs and algae; a preparation for the prevention and treatment of human immunodeficiency states was developed based on cucumaria (trepang).
