Dr. Rita Tömösközi-Farkas graduated from the Faculty of Chemistry at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. She then started his career at the Central Food Research Institute, where she is currently working. She has participated in the development and qualification of functional foods, herbal medicines, in vitro and in vivo studies. She has collaborated with several breeding institutes where she has been involved in the qualification of new plant varieties and breeding lines, optimization of nutritional values. She has gained considerable experience in chromatographic analysis of foodstuffs, in sample preparation and in analytical method development. Her interest is primarily to examine the bioactive components of plants and investigate the effect various abiotic and biotic stresses on the metabolom of plants.
