ADINACO Research Group

The research group (Alzheimer’s DIsease and NAtural COmpounds) deals with a wider study of substances isolated from plants and fungi of the Eumycota division from the point of view of their effects on patophysiological processes influencing the development of the Alzheimer’s disease. The group carries out isolation and identification of substances, determination of biological activity on a wide group of enzymes in CNS. In cooperation with other workplaces the group prepares partial derivatives of substances, and deals also with the study of the possibility of using substances in Alzheimer disease prevention in the form of food additives.
