Who we are, discover our vision, mission & team values

Poseidon Sciences Group undertakes its research and development efforts through its own network of research facilities and through strategic partnerships with companies and institutes worldwide. Here, we feature a few of our Partners.

In the Philippines, our research is in collaboration with Sulu Garden Foundation, Inc. (SGF). Ongoing research includes conservation, development of technologies for oil spill remediation and development of culture technologies of rare fishes, such as kikiro (Scatophagus argus). Poseidon Sciences also participates in SGF’s community development programs, such as medical missions in the highland villages, livelihood development and preservation of cultural heritage. To learn more, please see SGF’s website: www.sulugardenfoundation.org

Poseidon Sciences Research & Development, also based in the Philippines, is responsible for continuing work on the development of slow-release nontoxic insect repellent technologies against termites, mosquitoes and many other nuisance and medically important insect species.

Pollution of our oceans come from antifouling compounds added to underwater paint that continuously release chemicals into the marine environment.

In India, the primary research effort is screening for bioactive substances and surface designs the prevent biofouling that
prevent the attachment of barnacles and other fouling organisms to surfaces. Also, marine conservation and identification of endangered organisms are active ongoing research. This work is conducted under a long-term collaboration with Sacred Heart Marine Research Center
(SHMRC) since 1994. » More about Sacred Heart.

About Poseidon

Poseidon, in Greek religion, is the god of the sea and water. He was by tradition the son of Cronus, the ancient chief god, and Rhea, a fertility goddess. The Isthmia is the chief festival in Poseidon’s honor and celebrated near Isthmus of Corinth. His character as the sea god has been prominent in art and has been represented with the attributes of the trident, the dolphin and the tunnyfish.

Poseidon has three areas of major interest:

Solutions

Solutions to environmental and commercial technologies adversely affecting our oceanic environment

Innovations

Innovations in the artificial culture of marine and freshwater organisms of economic importance

Development

The development of natural compounds for use in medical treatments.

The first has led to the development of a novel concept that prevents the attachment of barnacles, accomplished through the use of environmentally friendly biochemicals instead of deadly man-made toxins that are now slowly killing our oceans. The second has led us to ways of producing marine food organisms that reduce the harvesting pressures on natural populations. The third has resulted in the discovery of compounds for skin diseases, diabetes and malaria control.

We also provide consulting services in the areas of coating, insect repellent and dermatological research; the promotion of new technologies for licensing, and regulatory support for chemical and biochemical products.

Poseidon pursues projects that satisfy the need for economic gain, underscored by our concern for the environment on which our company, and the earth’s future, depend. If you are aware of opportunities where Poseidon and your company may benefit together in the future, please feel free to contact us.
