Senior lecturer Lieselotte Cloetens, Dep. of Applied Biochemistry, Lund University and WP team leader at ScanOats IRC.
MSc. Mohammad Mukul Hossain, Dep. of Applied Biochemistry and PhD student ScanOats IRC.
has a long-standing experience in food science, from Uppsala
University, SLU, SIK (now RISE) in Gothenburg, and Århus University, and is now connected to Chalmers in Gothenburg. Bo Ekstrand has for many years been involved in the study of oat lipid composition and stability, and lipid hydrolysis and oxidation in general. In a recently published review the importance of the diet for brain performance and health is high-lighted, ia the role of lipids. How to take care of the valuable lipid components in plants and present them to the consumer in a stable and accessible form is a challenging task for food producers.
has a PhD, is Research Director at Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique CNRS, Marseille, France. Over the last 30 years, his main research activities have been dealing with the biochemistry of lipids and lipolytic enzymes, He investigated lipid digestion both in vitro and in vivo in the course of clinical studies. His studies have paid the way to the development of in vitro digestion methods, of lipase inhibitors for obesity treatment and of lipases for enzyme replacement therapy in patients with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency.
