Phlorotannins – extraction, profiling and bioactivities

Mariana Barbosa Malta Polyphenols 2019Dr. Mariana Barbosa, from Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Porto, Portugal will join the congress and give a talk entitled "Phlorotannins – extraction, profiling and bioactivities" during the  13th World Congress on Polyphenols Applications: Malta Polyphenols 2019 which will be be held in Matla, on September 30 -  October 1, 2019.

Summary of presentation: "Phlorotannins are phloroglucinol-based phenolic compounds found in brown seaweeds (Ochrophyta, Phaeophyceae) that have been pointed out as potent modulators of several biochemical processes linked to the breakdown of homeostasis in major chronic diseases. This talk will focus the effectiveness of properly characterized phlorotannin products on different experimental models, exploring the proposed mechanism of action and their potential as candidates for different biotechnological applications."
