Welcome to the Lab of Food Physical Chemistry & Biopolymeric Delivery Systems

Our group aims at improving human health both by preventive nutrition and by diagnostic/curative biomedicine.
Our approaches are based on exploring and deepening the understanding of the physicochemical behavior of biopolymers and their interactions with low molecular weight compounds in aqueous solutions, and applying these insights in the development of novel nature-inspired delivery systems for the enrichment of food & beverages with nutraceuticals, and for the diagnostics and treatment of diseases.
