Interests: isolation and characterization of marine natural products; drug discovery; anti-cancer compounds; anti-inflammatory compounds, anti-microbial compounds
Marine fungi are widely-distributed in different marine habitats, from the deep sea to polar ice covers. Marine fungi are well known for their capability of producing new natural products. Recent studies have revealed the potential of marine fungi as a source of secondary metabolites with vast chemodiversity and bioactivity. The variety of species and their capabilities to adapt to a variety marine environment demonstrate that marine fungi continue to be a rich source of new metabolites.
As a Guest Editor for this Special Issue, I invite you to submit your research findings on marine fungi ranging from the isolation and structure elucidation of new natural products to biosynthetic pathways of marine fungal metabolites.
