A multi-disciplinary team composed by colleagues from three public research institutions interested to join a PRIMA project as a partner
2- Food chemists
+Nutraceutical functions of phytochemicals; Sensory/nutritional qualities of fruit and vegetable products
+ research on how cultural practices affect the organoleptic properties (flavor; color) of agricultural products.. In addition to using a range of modern analytical equipment; such as GCxGC-TOF-MS; also focus on developing simple field-appropriate tests for food quality parameters.
+Safety and stability of plant-based foods; formulation and processing of acid; acidified and water activity controlled-foods; juice technology; food entrepreneurship
+ Biomimetic polymer synthesis, active packaging materials, biocatalytic materials, antimicrobial and nonfouling coatings, polymer surface modification
2- Analytical chemists and 1 Biological chemist
+ developing analytical and biochemical tools for deep profiling and spatial localization of specialized metabolites, (
+ developing experimental and data mining approaches to accelerate discoveries of natural products in plants and the genes involved in their accumulation,
+ deploying mass spectrometry measurements of human exposures to nutrients, toxins, and endogenous metabolites that drive epigenetic regulation of factors that influence disease,
+ measuring small molecule biomarkers whose levels reflect the effectiveness of disease treatments.
2 microbiologists with research interests covering
+Gene regulation in Lactococcus
4 Fruit and vegetable spécialistes (horticulture and pathology)
+ fruit and vegetable chemistry
+ valorization of fruit and vegetables and their by products
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
3 public research institutes
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
