Development of a novel continuous Extracellular Vesicle production system

Project description

Advanced nanoscale methods for healthy foods

Functional foods can be improved by addition of bioactive nutrients to enhance health and mitigate disease conditions. Encapsulation can also be used to facilitate the absorption of poorly assimilated compounds. Innovative nanoscale methods are creating alternative delivery options for nutraceuticals. The EU-funded greenEV project proposes the development of a continuous plant tissue culturing system for the manufacturing of non-mammalian nanovesicles that will be used for the encapsulation, release and bioavailability absorption of selected nutraceuticals. Plants vesicles are morphologically similar to mammalian extracellular vesicles (EVs). The project will establish an innovative plant-based EV manufacturing system. It will also use an integrated analytical pipeline for the isolation, characterisation, encapsulation, consumption and toxicological description of plant-secreted EVs.
