This multidisciplinary team brings together specialists in clinical analysis, endocrinology, family medicine, biology, pharmacy, and nutrition. The group focuses on the study of nutrition and its relationship to the risk of chronic degenerative conditions, including cardiovascular diseases.

The study of the underlying mechanisms of the benefits of a healthy diet is centred on classic risk factors along with emerging biomarkers (inflammation and oxidation, lipid profile, HDL functions, atherogenicity of LDL and VLDL, endothelial function, insulin resistance), and nutrients’ nutrigenomic effects and interactions with intestinal flora.

The group has four major lines of research, detailed below:
