Profile Information

Inaugurated in early 2011, with the striking blue waters visible from its laboratory windows, the Red Sea Research Center is well-positioned and well-equipped to study the Red Sea with state-of-the-art facilities and world-class researchers. The Red Sea Research Center has delved into the volume of research necessary to formulate a comprehensive understanding of the Red Sea to conserve its rich ecology and sustain its economic eminence.

This unique waterway supports diverse coral reefs and many species of fish, invertebrates, seaweeds, phytoplankton, and bacteria in a great number of different environments. The incredible biodiversity of the Red Sea holds untapped potential for pharmaceutical and biotechnology applications, such as the development of new drugs, enzymes useful for catalysis, and nutraceutical compounds. Red Sea organisms may also serve as models for understanding biological systems and adaptation to extreme environments.

Studies conducted by scientists within and in collaboration with the Red Sea Research Center have already broken the boundaries of current marine research and are making waves in the field.
