NUTRITION, FOOD AND HEALTH

LIFE AND HEALTH SCIENCES

- Nutrigenomics and Nutriepigenomics: Gene expression and epigenetic modulation analyses to identify how bioactive food components and food contaminants can modulate inflammatory responses and pathways involved in neurodegeneration in human cell lines and/or animal models

- Optimizing food processing for innovative applications (i.e. legumes, wheat, coffee,… ) and impact on nutritional value and health status

 

- Composition of microbiota and modulation by exogenous compounds (for example prebiotics/probiotics) able to affect gut-brain axis and the inflammatory pathway in the prevention and progression of diseases.
