Dr Glasson leads the Biorefinery project in the Centre for Macroalgal Resources and Biotechnology. His research is focused on algal sulfated polysaccharides (ASPs) known for their interesting biological activities, including antiviral, antioxidant, anticoagulant, antihyperlipidemic, anticancer, and immunomodulatory behaviours. Dr Glasson’s research involves relating the structural attributes of ASPs to their biological activities in order to develop structure-activity relationships that guide the manufacture and application of ASP products. The targeted applications for ASP products include multifunctional food additives, nutraceuticals, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
