Xiaoling Lu is a Professor of the college of Food Engineering and Biotechnology, Tianjin University of Science and Technology. Prof. Lu completed Bachelor of Science degree from Department of Biology Department in Peking University at 1982 and Master Degree from Department of Food Engineering in Tianjin Institute of Light Industry at 1985 and joined Tianjin Institute of Light Industry(the predecessor of Tianjin University of Science & Technology) for the following 32 years working as lecture, associate professor and professor, respectively. She published over 120 scientific papers, and served as a member of editor board for Chinese Food Additives and as a Secretary-General for China Food Additives and Ingredients Association Nutrition Enhancer and Specialty Nutritional Food Professional and Technology Committee Deputy.

Research Interests

Xiaoling Lu has long been engaged in the research on the mechanism and deep processing technology of natural antioxidants functional factors and natural pigments extracted from agricultural products or edible plants using biotechnology, especially on the biological production of anthocyanin , The structural characteristics, functional properties, processing and application characteristics of anthocyanins are systematically studied, and the research and industrialization of key production technologies are emphasized. Through in vitro and in vivo evaluation models of anthocyanin efficacy of nutrition regulating action mechanism, the relevant anthocyanin antioxidants, radiation and regulating blood lipids, regulate blood glucose and improve the role of menopause syndrome structure-activity relationship and regulation Mechanism of research, laid the foundation for the development of healthy food raw materials. Prof Lu is also good at technical research, achievements transformation and related basic research of other natural plant functional ingredients.
