Researcher

Outline, coordinate, manage and implement R&D innovation projects focusing on food
chemistry and biochemistry, namely on the development of food ingredients with functional
properties. The focus is primarily on hypocholesterolemic properties of hydrophilic bioactive
compounds present in food matrices. It is intended to determine the mechanisms of action and
to understand how the synergies between different compounds can affect cholesterol
homeostasis and/or other bioactive properties and its intestinal absorption.
