These are technologies derived from biological sciences, such as chemistry, microbiology or marine sciences, 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:

Technology to mitigate climate change

New technologies for preserving the function of the ocean

Development of solutions to mitigate climate change, pollution and the impact of humans on the marine environment, making a significant contribution to preserving the function of the ocean and safeguarding it for future generations. Our research includes the development of new mortars based on marine materials, the adaptation of halophytes for the absorption of contaminants and new technologies for the detection of cetaceans.

  • Objective: to make use of marine technologies geared towards the appropriate use of the oceans and improving the health of the ecosystem.

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.
