Lingyun Chen

Dept. of Agricultural, Food and Nutritional Science, University of Alberta, Canada

Dr. Lingyun Chen is Professor in the Dept. of Agricultural, Food and Nutritional Science at the University of Alberta and Canada Research Chair (Tier II) in plant protein area. She is internationally recognized for advancing the knowledge of plant protein structure-function relationships, and applying these to develop protein ingredients of improved physicochemical, nutritional, sensory, and functional properties towards food applications. For example, molecular structures of the plant proteins have been strategically designed to make competitive alternatives to the animal-based ingredients for meat analogue and dairy substitute applications. She has also substantially contributed to the understanding of plant protein unfolding and aggregation to fabricate protein matrices (hydrogels, fibers, films, micro- and nano-particles), and applying this knowledge to develop safe and naturally sourced biomaterials. She has a special interest in plant protein based delivery systems of nutraceuticals compounds (e.g. unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants) to create new functional foods that can improve public health and decrease the risk of chronic disease. Dr. Chen has 133 refereed journal publications, 7 invited book chapters, more than100 conference presentations and 2 pending patents. She is also leading and chairing protein symposiums/sessions in international conferences including AOCS, ACS and IFT.
