For a long time, Marine Pharmacology deals with the pharmacological potential of marine natural products. Since the approval of PrialtŪ (ziconotide, ?-conotoxin MVIIA) the synthetic equivalent of a conopeptide found in marine snails, by US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approval in 2004 a renaissance has occurred in this area of research. The recent global marine pharmacology preclinical pipeline included 592 marine compounds. Efficacy of marine substances brings new solutions for tackling some of the major public health problems of the 21st century. The marine bio-resources of India have wealth of potential therapeutic agents which have not been un-explored. Hence a systematic and scientific study of the pharmacology of marine natural products will help the development of drugs with less curative diseases such as cancer, AIDS and degenerative disorders.

We offer a highly interdisciplinary approach involving, marine biology, marine natural product's chemistry, marine bioinformatics, pharmacology, preclinical and clinical research to systematically screen this rich source for the benefit of humanity. With the goal of generating human resource for the emerging potential of drugs from marine sources, such an innovative interdisciplinary PG course in Marine Pharmacology is offered by CARE.
