Dr. Marc Anton is Research Director at the Unit of Biopolymers Interactions Assemblies (BIA) belonging to the National Institute of Agronomic Research (INRA) of Nantes (France) since 1996. He had first dedicated its research on the Functional properties of the hen egg yolk constituents. He is sub-head of BIA Unit and head of the Interfaces and Dispersed Systems (ISD) Team of the BIA Unit.
Dr. Anton published over 80 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 3 books, 20 book chapters, 4 patents and numerous conference proceedings.
Dr. Anton’s research interests include now proteins, lipids and lipoproteins structure and functionality (coming from animal or plant sources), protein aggregation, fabrication and characterisation of emulsions, colloidal interactions, and interfacial properties. He is concerned by the construction and the stabilisation of dispersed systems by biopolymer assemblies, but also by their deconstruction under constraints miming gastro-intestinal tract.
