To promote the research capability of marine science and technology, National Sun Yat-sen University (NSYSU) has established the Frontier Center for Ocean Science and Technology (FCOST). The goals of FCOST are advancing the collaboration and deepening the integration of marine research of multi-disciplines and the application of the research achievements into the marine industry. FCOST will also assist the College of Marine Sciences, NSYSU, in teaching, research, and social and industrial service. FCOST has already established several projects with Academia Sinica, the Ministry of Science and Technology, related private companies, and international collaborations with renowned universities worldwide. Currently, FCOST has signed a collaboratory research agreement with the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, to develop antiviral agents from marine natural products.
