Agnieszka Białek, PhD

Scientific interests:

Influence of food bioactivie compounds (e.g. conjugated fatty acids) on human health (model animals), bromatology, nutrigenomics, lipidomics, developmental programming, dietary supplements.

Scientific achievements:

>50 scientific paper, including 27 original papers of JCR, 8 review papers, 9 chapters; citations: 125, H index: 9.

Selected scientific achievements:

  1. Establishment that proper maternal dietary intake of conjugated linoleic acids decreases the mammary tumours risk in the progeny.
  2. Revelation of the influence of dietary fatty acids conjugated dienes and trienes on the risk of cancer, the mechanisms of their impact on lipid metabolism and their connection with peroxidation.
  3. Demonstration in the preliminary cardio-oncological studies of the effect of diet supplementation by conjugated fatty acids and selected plan materials on lipid metabolism in cardiac tissues during ongoing neoplastic process.
