Dr. András Nagy obtained a PhD degree in 2009 in Food Science from Food Science Doctoral Programme of the Corvinus University of Budapest in Hungary. Since 2015, he works as a senior research fellow at the Food Science Research Institute of the National Agricultural Research Centre (NAIRC-FSRI). During his scientific career he participated in several national and international projects; bilateral cooperations (polish, mexican, vallon); fellowships (Centre of Excellent fellowships) and he published in different scientific journals, conferences and workshops. He works in the protein laboratory, focusing on food allergens, proteins, peptides and in small conventional animal house. His main research areas are - in vivo digestibility of different proteins, allergens, bioactive peptides and components; -in vivo animal model for modulating humoral and cell-mediated immune response by lactic acid bacteria; -food safety assessment of a genetically modified bread wheat line; -development of immune analytical methods; - protein utilisation short and long term animal experiments; - protein, allergen and peptide separation and examination. He undertakes educational duties of MSc students in the topic of Food Safety and Immune analytical methods (Szent István University, Gödöllő, Hungary).
