We identify the mechanisms of action of gametes and embryos in farm animals, and exploit the knowledge acquired in the applied research.
Electrochemical sensors and biosensors for food analysis and medical diagnostics.
Immunomodulatory properties of food components and intestinal microbiota in in vitro and in vivo studies
We study the profile of phytochemicals in food, metabolism and bioavailability of phytochemicals, as well as antioxidant properties of food.
We develop analytical methods of bioactive compounds and their interactions. We study the influence of microstructure and physical properties on the food quality.
We study the effect of dietary and environmental factors on the host metabolism and health status using in vivo and in vitro methods
We study the role of adipose tissue and skeletal muscle in the development of insulin resistance in human. We also conduct weight loss programs for the obese.
Our studies are focused on human fertility problems and improvement of infertility treatment using assisted reproductive technology.
We study mechanisms involved in the regulation of the estrous cycle and embryo-maternal interactions during early pregnancy in a pig.
We study interactions between immune and female reproductive systems. Our long-term goal is to elucidate immuno- and neuro-endocrine pathomechanisms of ovarian and endometrial dysfunctions.
We study the molecular and morphological features of ischemic uterus, as well as the effect of environmental factors on biological barriers functioning.
