Marine Bioactives workshop (with PDF)

November 10th 2016

Rutherford Hotel, 27 Nile St W, Nelson 7010



(PDFs of presentations can be found next to the title of the talk in green)


A half-day workshop on Marine Lipid Bioactives will be held in Nelson on 10 November following the Lipids, Nutraceuticals and Healthy Diets Throughout the Life Cycle Conference.

The marine environment contains numerous bioactives, some of which are well known and well researched such as Omega 3 oils, while for some like fucoxanthin, the benefits are only beginning to be understood. This half day programme will highlight some recent science around marine lipid bioactives from local and overseas (Japan, France and Australia) researchers. Further, marine biotechnology companies will also be presenting their capabilities at this workshop.  The workshop will be hosted by Cawthron Institute’s Donato Romanazzi and Professor Masashi Hosokawa of Japan’s Hokkaido University as part of the New Zealand/Japan Strategic International Collaborative Research Program (SICORP).
