This programme line focuses on ingredients/product development of plants and fresh produce: reduction of health costs.
Aim is to screen plant material in vitro and in vivo (the latter with the use of C.elegans) and then, after analysis, develop cultivation protocols for plants chosen for their (combination of) active ingredients for the purpose of food supplements, medicinal excipients or medication.

It is common knowledge that fruit and vegetables can add to a healthy lifestyle. As part of research into the specific behaviour of ingredients (and energy) of plants and fruits, a contribution can be made to the factors of this phenomenon.
