Laboratory of Food Chemistry and Toxicology, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Valencia, E-46100 Valencia, Spain
Interests: The determination of mycotoxins in food, their daily intake, and toxicity are the basis to assess the risk associated with contaminated food and to contribute protecting consumers´ health. Professor Dr. Cristina Juan García main research interest lies in the analysis of mycotoxins in food and feed, through effective extraction and sensitive determination methods to help and contribute to the risk assessment of such contaminants, with a focus on human health. She is also interested in researching factors that influence the intestinal bioavailability and methods to decrease mycotoxins effects through natural compounds or decontaminating procedures. She is also interested in studying the application of new advanced techniques that provide knowledge or help to evaluate the risk assessment of mycotoxins through different matrices.
