The marine flora and fauna of NZ is being explored in a systematic fashion by the Marine Chemistry Group to identify those species that elaborate, or are host to symbionts that possess biological activity. Research activities of the group include the detection, isolation and structure determination of new antiviral or anticancer agents from bioactive NZ marine organisms, the isolation and cultivation of bioactive marine fungi and the synthesis of polymer therapeutics for use as targeted anticancer and anti-HIV drugs.
