The Enzyme Technology Group at Department of Biotechnology and Biomedicine at DTU is one of the leading European research institutes in
the field of seaweed carbohydrate chemistry and enzymatic fucoidan modification, and were among the first to report on in vitro anticancerogenic effects and in vivo immunostimulatory effects of
The team has expertise in compositional analytics of seaweed carbohydrates and gentle extraction of fucoidans. The group has published a number of research results about the structure-function relations of fucoidans with regard to bioactivity and potential use of fucoidans in cancer therapy as well as for strengthening the immune system.
