Bioactives & Performance Biologicals – From receptor biology to active ingredients

Receptors play a key role in biological systems in terms of their perception of and interaction with the environment. They are are suitable targets for identifying compounds that can be used to maintain and improve health and well-being. Research on receptors in suitable model systems and the evaluation of potential modulators are the basis of BRAIN’s BioActives and Performance Biologicals Unit.
