Marine sources are an unlimited field of research in terms of bioactive compounds that are synthesized. Some of them have demonstrated important biological properties towards the prevention of various diseases including cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, obesity, etc. Current research in the screening of bioactive compounds from marine sources focuses on the design of new extraction processes to isolate the target compounds, the bioprospecting of new unexplored marine sources of bioactive compounds, the chemical characterization of the products and the testing of the diferent associated bioactivities, among others. The goal of this Marine Drugs Special Issue is to gather the most relevant and new research articles in the field able to outline the progress in this important field.
