DESCRIPTION

Objectives:

  • To gain knowledge in the field of Immunonutrition, through the study of nutrition-related factors that influence the development and function of the immune system
  • To understand how different food components modulate immune homeostasis as well as the defense mechanisms against bacteria, viruses, allergens, toxins, or malignant cells
  • To study the immune biomarkers associated with the individual’s nutritional status.

Research Lines:

  • Evaluation of the nutritional and immune status and their interactions in groups at risk of disease.
  • Study of pathologies associated with nutrition and immunity (ED, obesity, celiac disease, allergies…)
  • Analysis of the immunomodulating properties of several foods and food components.
  • Evaluation of lifestyle factors (intake, physical activity and fitness, etc.). Recommendations.

Skills:

  • Analysis of immune and inflammatory markers in relation to conditions associated with nutrition and immunity (obesity, metabolic syndrome, allergy, celiac disease)
  • Epidemiologic studies of immune biomarkers
  • Implementation of dietary intervention studies in humans assessing food compounds and ingredients and functional foods (probiotics, fatty acids, aminoacids, alcohol…)
  • Evaluation of nutritional status in eating disorders
  • Assesment of habits and lifestyle factors (diet, physical activity, etc.)
  • Characterization of the immunomodulating properties of different nutrients, bioactive compounds and alleged functional foods, both in vitro (cell culture models) and in vivo (animal models)
  • Teaching at the undergraduate and postgraduate level, and research training.
