I am interested to know about the medical use of opisthobranchs, and about the biotecnology and natural products chemistry. Thanks for your collaboration.

Dear Alexander,
There is a growing literature on the natural products chemistry of opisthobranchs. Have a look at the Fact Sheet on this topic and other messages on this page for some clues on finding answers to your questions.
Best wishes,
