The Centre for Marine Chemical Ecology brings together researchers in biology, chemistry and biohydrodynamics to collaborate and improve the understanding of chemically mediated interactions between marine organisms and their environment.
Focus is on production and response to bioactive compounds used in chemical defence.

Swantje Enge receives the Faculty of Science Doctoral Thesis Award for her thesis: Seaweed Invasions and Novel Chemical Defences
From the motivation:
"Swantje Enge has with her thesis "Seaweed Invasions and Novel Chemical Defences" proved that she in an independent and impressive way masters theoretical framework, challenging ecological field studies and experiments as well as advanced chemical and genetic analyzes. The thesis is multidisciplinary and deals with the ecological processes and mechanisms that may explain why some non-native species are exceptionally successful and outcompete native species in areas where they did not previously exist. The thesis is very well written and its manuscripts have been well received in leading ecological journals."
