Pharmaceutical Biology

The Department of Pharmaceutical Biology focuses on the one hand on plant-based secondary metabolites of low molecular nature and on the other hand on high molecular glycans and proteoglycans and their effects on hemostasis, immune system and tumor metastasis.

Tasks within the project:

  • Testing of processes as well as extraction and fractionation of fucoidanes
  • Characterisation of fucoidans by chemical and biological processes
  • Development of a fucoidan database as a sustainable and expandable source of information for research and economic fucoidan use
