Dr RuAngelie Edrada-Ebel

Senior Lecturer

Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences

Personal statement

Dr Edrada-Ebel currently heads the Natural Products Metabolomics Group (NPMG) and is currently author of more than 100 publications and two patents on the topic marine natural products. She referees articles on marine natural products on more than 10 peer-reviewed journals and is a member of the editorial board for Marine Drugs. Her expertise comprises both natural products isolation and structure elucidation with modern spectroscopic techniques. At present, she has a series of on-going projects on the application of metabolomics to identify and biotechnologically optimize the production of bioactive secondary metabolites in marine-derived microorganisms.

Research interests

  • Natural products metabolomics to optimise production of secondary metabolites in their microbial sources as well as using metabolomics tools in targeting the isolation of bioactive metabolites from their natural sources. Collaboration has been established with Professor Ron Quinn of the Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery, Griffith University and Professor  Fernando da Costa of the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences of Ribeirão Preto, University of São Paulo.
  • Metabolomics of microbial symbionts in collaboration with Professor Ute Hentschel of the Sponge Microbiology Group at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel and partners with SeaBioTech, an FP-7 funded project.
  • Real Time Flux Modeling in Biopharmaceutical Bioprocessing, jointly co-funded by the BBSRC and the EPSRC, a collaborative research on metabolomics and fermentation work as well as further national collaborative work with Scottish medium-scale enterprises on the cultivation of marine microorganism. 
  • Metagenomic approach of optimizing the production of novel antibiotics from Streptomyces
  • Propolis project with Beevital exploring the anti-trypanosomal activity of the African Propolis collection
  • Ecological implications of the production of secondary metabolites in Crustaeceans and alternative application of utilising the waste products of the by-catch in collaboration with the Langoustine Laboratory, University of Glasgow.
  • Dereplication study and metabolomics of sponges and their endozooic microorganism obtained from the Irish and Celtic Sea (in collaboration with Prof. Alan Dobson, Environmental Research Institute, University College Cork)
  • Structure elucidation of biologically active secondary metabolites from sponges, tropical plants, and marine-derived fungi
  • Phytochemistry of biologically active secondary metabolites from tropical plants from Southeast Asia and Africa (in collaboration with Prof. Alan Harvey, SIDR)
  • Mass spectral analysis of marine-derived synthetic pyridinium polymers as novel anti-cancer drugs (in collaboration with Prof. Marcel Jaspars, University of Aberdeen)
