RESEARCH INTERESTS:

Research goal is to unveil the role of functional foods and their dietary bioactive components in health and diseases. Understanding the mechanisms by which bioactive food components influence the risk of development of characteristics of metabolic syndrome including diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, hypertension and obesity and also factors affecting appetite and food intake regulatory system is my particular interest. The specific focus of my research program is on physiological and nutritional functions of dietary proteins and peptides. Both animal and clinical approaches are applied to reveal underlying mechanisms of functional foods and also to examine the applicability of research outcomes. It helps to transfer knowledge and findings from lab bench to the community level and facilitate collaboration between academia, community and food industry.
