The impact of coffee on cardiometabolic disease risk

Observational data suggests that consuming 3-5 cups of coffee/day is protective against cardiometabolic diseases (i.e. cardiovascular diseases; CVDs and type 2 diabetes; T2D), but mechanisms of action are not clear. Read more

Desinging new sucrose replacers for bakery products that mimic physical and sensory properties

Sugar hygroscopicity and plascitizing properties define the final textural properties of the resultsing bakery products. By understanding these physical properties new and novel molecules could be defined to mimic sucrose technological functionalities in biscuits and cakes. Read more

Extracellular vesicles in health and disease

Endothelial dysfunction (ED) is associated with classical and emerging risk factors of cardiovascular disease (CVD), correlates with disease progression and is an independent predictor of the risk of future cardiovascular events. Read more

Integrative approach to valorise vegetable waste

The FAO estimates that around one third of all food produced worldwide is not consumed, which represents around 1.3 billion tons per year, and is wasted throughout the whole food chain, from farmers to consumers. Read more

Modulation of fortified foods for older adults

Protein requirements increase with age as protein can help minimise sarcopenia and improve immunity. However protein fortified foods are often poorly accepted by older adults and can lead to numerous negative sensory attributes. Read more

Structure-function relationships governing polyphenol bioactivity with respect to plasma membranes

This project aims to investigate polyphenol binding to lipid membrane surfaces with a view to understanding how polyphenol structure and aggregation within the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) affects the bioavailability of these nutraceuticals. Read more

Multi-omics data fusion for better understanding of host-microbe interactions in health and disease

"The rapid development and adoption of high-throughput, high resolution analytical technologies (e.g. genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, metagenomics) has resulted in the generation of an avalanche of omics data. Read more
