Teresa Serra and Naiara Fernández, Principal Scientists of Food & Health Division at iBET, participated in the “Natural Products Applications: Health, Cosmetics and Food” conference. The event was held virtually and took place from 4 to 5 February.
Teresa Serra presented an oral communication entitled “Unveiling the protective role of natural bioactive compounds towards colorectal cancer” and Naiara Fernández presented a pitch on “Industrial waste streams valorization at iBET: health related bioactives from fisheries and wineries”. Both communications are available online here (Teresa’s presentation starts at 01:57:00 and Naiara’s presentation starts at 03:13:00).
iBET participation in this conference was a valuable opportunity to disseminate the work performed at Food & Health Division, focusing the development of innovative processes and analytical/biochemical tools for production and characterisation of bioactive natural ingredients.
The 1st edition of Natural Products Applications Congress, organised by the Mountain Research Centre and the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança, welcomed over 450 participants all over the world, from the science community and the industrial sector (Food and Cosmetic companies).
