Organization profile

The Research and Development Group in Sciences Applied to Biological Resources (GIDCARB) is established with the purpose of investigating and valuing the biological heritage of the country, in close collaboration with the Center for Research and Valuation of Biodiversity of the Salesian Polytechnic University. The team is made up of professionals with various specializations, such as biochemistry, chemistry and biotechnology, who are dedicated to projects related to natural product applications, chemobiodiversity and bioactivity. The central objective of the group is to study the chemical composition of natural products and evaluate their pharmacological and biological properties, in order to offer the community raw materials and products that can be used in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and functional food industries. This multidisciplinary approach and the integration of students in practical research highlights GIDCARB's commitment to science and sustainable development.

Research lines:

  1. Natural products
  2. Chemo-biodiversity
  3. Functional Foods
  4. biological activity
  5. Ethnobiology
