Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue is dedicated to Professor Ernesto Fattorusso, one of the pioneers in Chemistry of Marine Natural Products, who passed away in July 2012.

In the last three decades, research on natural products has clearly shown that the chances of finding new bioactive compounds are remarkably higher among the less studied marine organisms than among terrestrial organisms. The biosynthetic capability of marine organisms is amazing, even if the discovery that symbiotic microorganisms are the true producers of many of these compounds provided at least a partial answer. The jointed work of chemists of natural products with pharmacologists gave rise to hundred of publications showing the potentiality of marine natural products as leads in the drug discovery.

This special issue will be focus on recent accomplishments in this field, providing a tool for young researchers that want to approach this terribly interesting world.
