Division of Food Science
  • Department of Food Analytics
  • Investigation of instrumental analytical methods
    for determination of food ingredients
  • selective and highly sensitive instrumental
    methods (HPLC, GC) for food quality and
    safety assurance,
  • near infrared (reflectance/transmittance)
    spectroscopy for non-destructive analysis,
  • research on physical, chemical and biological
    methods for food analysis,
  • quantification of food components and food
    contaminants (allergens, toxins and
    pesticide residues),
  • origins and varieties of different raw
  • detection of adulteration, unlawful
    technological treatments and materials,
  • analysis of microbial spoilage compoundse,
  • investigation of sensor technologies
    (biosensors, immunosensors).

Division of Food Science
  • Department of Biology
  • Investigation of hazards of novel foods and food
    producing technologies in the viewpoint of food
  • molecular biology screening and quantification
    of GMOs, transgenic organisms, potential
    allergens using DNA based methodologies,
  • protein separation techniques, immunoanalytical
    methods transgenic proteins, determination of
    potential allergenic compounds,
  • assessment of the fate of antigenic/allergenic
    proteins by in vitro and in vivo rat models,
  • animal (rat/mice) models for biological
    evaluation of proteins and modulating of immune
    responses using oral adjuvant (probiotics, plant
  • development of probiotics (LAB) based plant
    products (selection methods, fermentation

Division of Food Science
  • Department of Food Technology Economy and Quality
  • Development of novel food technologies, social
    and economic studies to establish food safety
    strategy, risk communication
  • novel, environmentally protective and energy
    saving food technologies serving consumers
    health protection and quality improvement,
  • application of new technologies based on
    physical methods e.g. pulsing electric field
    (PEF), radiofrequency and microwave
    treatment, supercritical fluid extraction,
  • novel packaging materials, pilot plant studies,
    sensory analysis,
  • questionnaire assessments at different food
    chain players (agricultural producers,
    food processors, food trade, restaurants/public
    catering), consumers and vulnerable
    consumer groups,
  • consumers and professional opinions regarding
    genetically modified food products,
  • qualitative and quantitative survey techniques
    (conjoint analysis, focal groups, opinion
    networking, SPSS, etc.), risk management,
    consumer protection and information.

Division of Agricultural Environmental Safety
  • Department of Environmental Analytics
  • Investigation of instrumental and bioanalytical
    methods for determination of environmental
  • pesticide residue analytics,
  • organic microcontaminants in environmental
    samples (surface and ground water,
  • soils, biological samples),
  • common environmental and food contamination
    originated from agriculture,
  • drinking water quality,
  • side effects of organic microcontaminants
    (endocrine disruption),
  • detection of adulteration, unlawful
    technological treatments and materials,
  • investigation of analytical methods (ELISA,
  • determination of effects of GMO.

Division of Agricultural Environmental Safety
  • Department of Microbiology
  • Microbiological methods for environmental and
    food safety problems
  • effects of traditional and combined processing
    technologies to reduce risks of
  • health impairment due to pathogenic
    micro-organisms, effect of novel, not yet
    regulated food
  • processing technologies on bacteria,
  • growth and survival of spoilage micro-organisms
    in foods,
  • microbiology of foods of plant origin
    investigation of the food chain,
  • rapid microbiological methods,
  • biofilm formation of bacteria on surfaces,
  • biodegradation of packaging materials.

Division of Agricultural Environmental Safety

  • In vitro and in vivo laboratory biotests to
    demonstrate the (eco)toxicological effects
  • in vivo bioassays on atrhropods to assess
    ecotoxicological side-effects of environmental
  • contaminants of agricultural or
    anthropogenic origin
  • microbiological and in vivo mutagenity tests to
    assess mutagenicity/potential carcinogenicity
  • of xenobiotics,
  • environmental assassment of genetically
    modified (GM) crops,
  • - harmful effects on protected species
  • - resistance problems,
  • - possible gene flow (pollen escape,
  • - co-occurrence of insect and fungal pests on
    GM crops
  • environmental issues of hygienic applications
  • (grain/produce storage and mosquito
