LIAB Award 2020: improving curcumin’s bioaccessibility for therapeutic treatments

LIST International Award in Bioinnovation

Dr Ozan N. Ciftci, a world leader in food chemistry and engineering and his discovery of a novel green-based approach to improve curcumin’s bioaccessibility is the winner of LIST’s second International Award in Bioinnovation (LIAB Award 2020).

Please join us for the online award ceremony which will take place at 15.00 CET on Thursday 26 November 2020 on this link.

Exemplified by Ozan Ciftci’s work, the LIAB award rewards research findings and technologies that are particularly likely to be transferred to the market. The award takes a deep look into natural objects found in our environment, like plants. This type of research is carried out at LIST as part of its environmental activities and especially in its GreenTech Innovation Centre (GTIC): a one-stop-shop for the complete development of bio-based products and processes.  

The LIAB Award is sponsored by PM-International, a Luxembourg-based nutrition company specialised in premium dietary supplements and health products. The award seeks to connect Luxembourg to world-leading researchers in the fields of biology, ecology, circular economy, health sciences and food sciences by rewarding the most outstanding research work in the domains of bioavailability of nutrients, nutrient transport or nutrient effectiveness on a cellular level.
