Sea-Eu programme, Maltese season for LEMAR

In the framework of the SEA-EU project, our Maltese colleagues organised a workshop entitled “Towards a sustainable blue economy in 2030: Exploring opportunities for innovation and collaboration”. This workshop took place in two parts:

  • A one-day presentation (remote event) on 24 June 2021
  • A 3-day face-to-face bootcamp, which took place in Malta, on the University of Malta Valletta campus, from 15 to 17 September.

A team of 4 researchers and students from the UBO was selected to participate (based on their background and motivation).

Among them, 2 of our colleagues represented LEMAR:

Charlotte Corporeau for her research actions in biology at the sea-health interface for the Blue economy.
Mariana Ventura, PhD student in marine biotechnology at LEMAR

Also present in the Brest delegation: Jean-Marie Vient, PhD student in marine geology at the Ocean Geosciences Laboratory and Bertrand Le Gallic, Lecturer and researcher in marine economy at AMURE.

Identification, study and development of molecules and ingredients of marine origin for health and biotechnology

,

Marine environments are home to a wide variety of organisms whose physiology has adapted to the biotic and abiotic constraints of their environment, adapting their cellular functioning and producing original primary and/or secondary metabolites. These cellular mechanisms and these compounds, whether they are involved in vital processes or in inter-organism interactions, represent a reservoir of potentially valuable molecules in human, animal and plant health, in cosmetics, in agri-food and more generally in biotechnology. The aim is to take advantage of the knowledge acquired on marine biodiversity, chemical ecology and the cellular mechanisms of marine organisms, to isolate, characterise and develop mechanisms and bioactive substances that can be used to combat certain diseases, families of compounds that are beneficial to human and animal health, or of interest in biotechnology. It is also a question of imagining tomorrow’s biotechnological developments in innovative fields such as biomimetic approaches for the development of biocompatible materials, the emergence of natural products from sustainable approaches, or the fight against biofouling. The identification of fundamental, ancestral and original mechanisms present in marine organisms represents a source of inspiration for mimicking these processes in human health, in the fight against certain metabolic pathologies or cellular disorders, thus accelerating our interface perspectives towards clinical research.
