Basically, our research aims to contribute to answering the questions: “How does food affect our health?” or more precisely “What is the healthiest diet for me (in the context of inflammatory diseases)?”
We apply instrumental analytical methods to provide quantitative data about the activity of compounds on the molecular stage. Based on this data we gain unrivaled mechanistical information on the effect of diet on physiology in health and disease.
