Biobased and Biomedical Products
The Biobased and Biomedical Products Research Group has been reorganized to combine CBQF capacity to respond to National and EU priority for future growth of Bioeconomy and Circular Economy, reinforcing capacity and opportunities on the bio-based products. The group focuses on these challenges by exploring novel bioactives and bioproducts from renewable sources (including byproducts), promoting added value applications for food, quality of life and biomedical sectors and using metabolomics approaches to understand biological systems or processes. The group involves a multidisciplinary team to respond to R&I challenges with a wide range of competences. Besides the group receives regularly foreign researchers (ca. 10/year), reflecting the internationalization capacity and consolidated network with academia and industry, with technology transfer of 18 patents.
