Main research areas:

  • Metabolism of different fatty acids in various biological systems (human cells in culture, laboratory animals, laying hens, ruminants).
  • Physiological effects of plant-derived bioactive compounds (phenolic compounds, triterpenes, unfamiliar fatty acids) in different animal and human models.
  • Physiological and toxicological consequences of the ingestion of xenobiotics, especially in terms of interactions with other food-borne compounds.
