Dr. Vasantha Rupasinghe, Associate Professor, Dalhousie Medicine, Canada Research Chair in Fruit Bioactives & Bioproducts


Dr. Vasantha Rupasinghe, Canada Research Chair in Fruit Bioactives and BioProducts, believes that components in fruit have remarkable power in preventing the development of chronic diseases. He has found that flavonoids in fruit can act as dietary supplements that may reduce the risk of chronic diseases like brain disorders and heart disease. His research is investigating new ways to identify and incorporate bioactive flavonoids into regular diets.
