Published in 3/8/2018
Ricardo Calado, a researcher from the Department of Biology & CESAM (Centre for Environmental and Marine Studies), is the first author of a chapter from the most recent book of the "Grand Challenges in Biology and Biotechnology " Series, from Springer.
The chapter "How to Succeed in Marketing Marine Natural Products for Nutraceutical, Pharmaceutical and Cosmeceutical Markets" from the book "Grand Challenges in Marine Biotechnology" evidences the quality and impact of the research made at CESAM regarding a strategy towards a blue bioeconomy.
Marine ecosystems shelter organisms with unique survival skills that include the production of secondary metabolites of extreme biological importance and with a high commercial value for nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and cosmeceutical companies. This chapter makes a review on how these marine natural products can be marketed, from the discovery and development stage until the marketing of the final product. Challenges arisen from this process are also highlighted and discussed in this chapter.
The chapter of about 100 pages is available here.
