Dr. Emmanouil Apostolidis Receives Funding from NSRDEC

U.S. Army Natick Labs (NSRDEC) has awarded Dr. Emmanouil Apostolidis of the Chemistry and Food Science Department a research award for a project titled “Determination of blueberry and cocoa phenolic bioactive fractions for glucose uptake regulation.”  The goal of Dr. Apostolidis’ proposed study is to assess the potential of blueberry and cocoa phenolic constituents for Type-2 Diabetes management via the inhibition of carbohydrate hydrolysis enzymes.  A series of two in-vitro experiments are proposed to investigate the effect of blueberry and cocoa extracts to define the most bioactive phytochemical fractions. Dr. Apostolidis received his undergraduate and graduate degrees from University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
