Nutri-Cosmeceuticals, Nutrigenomics & Nanodelivery

Programme : Nutri-Cosmeceuticals, Nutrigenomics & Nanodelivery 
Programme Leader:  Prof. Dr. Maznah Ismail

Synopsis :

This program focuses on research and innovations for novel nutraceuticals and cosmeceuticals from natural bio-resources, particularly local resources in application for the maintenance of health, prevention and treatment of oxidative stress related diseases, including obesity, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus, colon cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

Novel bioactives for cosmeceuticals development with anti-aging functions are also studied. Investigation of mechanisms, genetic interactions and optimal delivery systems in particular nano delivery system to target tissues and organs are carried out.

The aims of the programme to:

1.Develop novel nutraceuticals and cosmeceuticals from plant and animal natural resources. Using different extraction green technologies.

2.Conduct preclinical and clinical studies on the efficacies of nutraceuticals and cosmeceuticals for optimal health, preventation and treatment of life style diseases and anti-aging.

3.Unravel the mechanistic actions of novel bioactive using various OMICS technologies.

4.Investigate bioavailability pharmacokinetics and delivery systems of nutraceuticals and cosmeceuticals.

5.Commercialise nutraceuticals and cosmeceauticals.
