  • Experimental models: identify the mechanisms of action and toxicity of new bioactive compounds and functional foods with potential preventative activity against prevalent pathologies.
  • During the 2014-2016 period, the MEFOPC project (Metabolic Fate of Olive Oil Phenolic Compounds in Humans: Nutrigenomic Effects) was carried out in which we had the objective of studying the mechanisms of endothelial dysfunction modulated by the " Hydroxytyrosol action and metabolites of hydroxytyrosol through experimental models.
  • Human studies: study the impact of bioactive compounds on population health by conducting interventional, bioavailability studies and consumer markers.
  • Health promotion: conduct educational intervention studies in different populations to adopt healthy lifestyles in diet and physical activity. Integrate the promotion of health in university education.
