Every year, the Catalan Nutrition Center (CCNIEC) of the Institute for Catalan Studies (IEC) in Catalonia (Spain) recognizes the best doctoral theses’ in the field of food science and nutrition. In the current edition, our very own Beatriz Quintanilla Casas has been awarded the CCNIEC-Eroski Foundation 2022 Prize for her doctoral thesis, titled “Development of innovative analytical techniques for olive oil authentication and quality assessment”.
In all honesty, this is really something that happened on our duty. The work was carried out within the Lipids and bioactive compounds research group at the department of Nutrition, Food Science and Gastronomy of University of Barcelona (Spain). But we are happy and proud regardless!
