Welcome to the homepage of the research group of Prof. Dr. Nils Helge Schebb.

Our research focuses on the investigation of biological activities employing instrumental analytical methods. By providing quantitative data about the activity as well as the concentration of metabolites we seek to improve the systematic/molecular understanding of the health effect of the diet and food ingredients.
