A new collaborative project at the Department of Molecular Sciences

Published: 20 June 2019

A new collaborative project started at the Department of Molecular Sciences there a new foods developed from animal by-products will be investigated. The study is one of the line from long-term collaboration between SLU and The V.M.Gorbatov Federal Research Center for Food Systems of RAS, Moscow, Russia.

It was previously suggested that the tissues of pigs and cattle contain bioactive substances that are potentially effective in the treatment of atherosclerotic disease and other metabolic issues. In the present study, we are planning to identify these substances by using metabolomics (Lc-MS and NMR).

Prof Irina Chernukha from The V.M.Gorbatov Federal Research Center for Food Systems of RAS visited our department in June 2019 to discuss time frames and expected outcomes.

“We are pleased to be a part of this project, which provide an opportunity for researchers to build strategic partnerships”, said Galia Zamaratskaia.

“This work will be an important part of PhD thesis of Mathilde Brunell”, continued Jana Pickova.

“I hope that the outcomes of the project will help to improve meat image as a part of healthy human diet”, added Sabine Sampels.

The project is financed by the Russian Science Foundation, project 16-16-10073П.
