Research Project 3


The Search for New Biomarkers and the Development of Methods for Evaluating the Safety of Food and Medicine:

We will search for new biomarkers for lifestyle-related and other diseases by employing a high-throughput technology which enables us to perform comprehensive analyses of whole intermediate metabolites in the body, a method referred to as ‘metabolic profiling.’ Molecular probes such as catechin derivatives will be used for screening biomarkers. We will also establish standardized methods for the quantitative and qualitative evaluation of both efficacy and safety of functional food factors both in vitro and in vivo.
