Algae produce compounds that can relieve pain and inflammation.

 

What if we could develop functional food and medication from these natural molecules?

Dive into the world of algae research

Over
6.8 million people

suffer from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD),

a persistent and painful inflammation that damages the digestive tract.

Yet, no effective cure exists...

uses the health potenial of algae to bring relief for IBD patients.

At Algae4IBD, we study algae and their metabolites to develop novel solutions for the prevention and treatment of pain, inflammation, and IBD.
