Our research investigates the impact of selected dietary components (in particular n-3 fatty acids and selected flavonoids such as quercetin) and different dietary patterns (e.g., Mediterranean diet vs. Western diet) on cardio-metabolic health with a focus on glucose and lipid metabolism, systemic inflammation, blood pressure and vascular function. We are also interested in cognitive health and nutrient-genotype interactions with a focus on the APOE genotype. Our main methods focus is human intervention trials (RCTs) including (strictly) controlled dietary studies (iso- or hypoenergetic), postprandial protocols and bioavailability studies. Subjects of our studies are metabolically healthy participants and subjects with a risk phenotype for cardiovascular and neurodegenerative disease (e.g., overweight/obese adults with metabolic syndrome).
