Interview with Dr. Creina Stockley

1. What does it mean: “low risk drinking guidelines”? The term ‘low risk’ refers to a low risk of harm (short-term and long-term) to your health from consuming alcoholic beverages according to the recommendations in the guidelines. 2. Why is there such a difference in drinking guidelines between the various countries?

News from the WIC Scientific Experts

Prof. Mladen Boban, University of Split Medical School and his research team were recently awarded a grant to investigate the “Biological effects of wine: the influence of vinification technology, dealcoholisation and ageing of wine” Grape production technology and procedures in wine making and processing significantly affect biochemical composition and organoleptic properties of wine. However, the effects of different oenological procedures on the biological activity of wine are poorly investigated. The overall aim of this project, which represents an interdisciplinary research…

At the beginning I was oriented on in vitro studies in the small animals' isolated hearts and blood vessels. The results of these early studies provided basis for getting deeper into the field and for development of the complementary in vivo models in humans. I have been particularly interested in…
