These are technologies derived from biological sciences, such as chemistry or microbiology, which will help mitigate the effects of climate change, water scarcity, the loss of ecosystems or lack of resources. Our projects address challenges such as:

biochemical markers for preventive health care applications

The future of human health and well-being.

Design and development of minimally invasive detection systems that track biochemical markers to enable preventive health care applications.

  • Objective: to monitor human health and well-being through the use of ‘wearables’.

antimicrobial properties for cosmetic and health industries

New products with antimicrobial properties

Search for antimicrobial properties using microalgae extracts from the Canary Islands, with applications in both the cosmetic and health industries.

  • Objective: to search for new products with antimicrobial properties.

new groups of extremophile bacteria

We search for new therapeutic agents

Search for new groups of extremophile bacteria from unexplored habitats to serve as sources of new therapeutic agents.

  • Objective: to search for new therapeutic agents based on new groups of extremophile bacteria.

bacterial consortium to improve soils in crisis

We research to improve the quality of deteriorated soils.

Development of a bacterial consortium to improve the quality of deteriorated soils and soils at risk of production due to climate change and anthropogenic activities. We have previously taxonomically identified our unique collection of strains from extreme environments.

  • Objective: to search for solutions to improve soils in crisis.
