Biography Diana Lindberg
I am a researcher working in the fields of biotechnology and bioeconomy with sustainable valorization of marine and agricultural by-products. More specifically, the work I have done so far in industry and academia is conducted within the following fields:
– Discovery and extraction of enzymes and (bioactive) peptides from marine and land-based animals, e.g. fish, shellfish & chicken, and by-products thereof
– Up- and downstream processing of marine and agricultural biomass
– Enzymes in industrial applications. Primarily hydrolysis reactions utilizing proteases, esterases/lipases, and epoxide hydrolases
– Enzyme kinetics, assay development, (bio-)activity measurements
– Protein cloning, expression in bacteria and yeast, and recovery
I have a PhD in biochemistry/enzymology (Uppsala University, Sweden) and an MSc in Biotechnology (KTH, Sweden).
Diana Lindberg has 26 publications at Nofima:
1. January 2018 – 1. January 2021
We want everyone to be able to eat good, healthy food – no matter what their situation.
1. July 2017 – 30. June 2021
Processing through EPH provides new and better opportunities than current technologies for re-cycling proteins into foods, as protein hydrolysates can show e.g. nutritional, sensory and/or biological activity useful in e.g. innovative food products.
18. April 2017 – 1. September 2020
Snow crab is a relatively new species for the Norwegian seafood industry. The aim of this project has been to contribute towards a sustainable crab fishery in the future and to make the best possible use of this new resource.
9. February 2017 – 31. December 2022
Over almost 40 years, Nofima has built up a strong scientific community in the field of spectroscopy - rapid and non-destructive measurements for process optimization. We possess solid expertise within an international format and a modern instrument platform, which is unique in Norway and comparable to the best in Europe. We wish to develop this further by means of establishing the strategic research initiative Spectec.
1. January 2017 – 31. December 2020
The main objective of this research program is to contribute to increased and sustainable growth in the food industry through increased innovativeness in the food value chain.
1. March 2015 – 28. February 2019
In this multi-disciplinary project we have studied the entire value chain for mackerel and farmed salmon.
