At its meeting of 28/29 September 2016 the ETH Board has promoted Prof. Laura Nyström, currently Tenure Track Assistant Professor at ETH Zurich, to Associate Professor of Food Biochemistry.
Quote ETH News: "Laura Nyström’s research focuses on dietary fibres and the associated phytochemicals in cereal grains and other plant components. Her research group investigates chemical and biochemical reactions which may destroy these health-promoting compounds in foodstuffs during processing and storage, evaluates different types of cereal and plants as raw materials, and looks for ways to improve the functionality of these food constituents. Laura Nyström has received a number of awards and grants for her research, including an ERC Starting Grant in 2015."
