The SeaHealth Project - Dr Emer Shannon soon to be joining the CyberColloids team

The aim of the SeaHealth project is to evaluate the potential of seaweed derived bioactives to be used as functional ingredients in food. Different species of seaweed from Australia and Ireland are being screened, specifically for activity that could be beneficial to the gut and metabolic health. SeaHealth is a collaborative effort between Teagasc & CyberColloids in Ireland and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Australia.

Dr Emer Shannon, the research fellow who is conducting the work, will shortly be joining the CyberColloids team for a 6 month secondment to further the research but you can read about the project & findings to date in the articles linked below.

The SeaHealth project is funded by the Research Leaders 2025 postdoctoral programme. It is also co-funded by Teagasc and the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant
