Abstract On June 15, 2006, Prof. René Wijffels accepted his appointment as Professor of Bio-Process Engineering at Wageningen University with his inaugural address. In his speech, Wijffels explained that the possibilities of getting bio-active products from sea organisms are spectacular; especially natural sea sponges are a ‘gold mine’. These invertebrate animals offer possibilities to develop medication to fight some of the most important diseases in the world. Right now, three quarters of all patented bio-active material for cancer medication comes from sponges.
