Møreforsking Ålesund AS conducts basic and applied research for industrial and commercial development in the marine sector; both at the national and international levels. Located on the west coast of Norway, the research institute possesses decades of experience with interdisciplinary research on marine resources covering the full value chain from ocean to consumer with a focus on competence transfer to industry, local community and public administration in the Møre and Romsdal county.
– We are impressed by the pharmaceutical goals of Arctic Nutrition and look forward to contributing to their progress. It will be exciting to address research questions on omega 3 fatty acids and inflammation to support the development of Arctic Nutrition’s marine drug, says Møreforsking scientist Jennifer Mildenberger, who welcomed Arctic Nutrition’s scientific team at their laboratory in Ålesund this Thursday to kick-off the collaboration.
