Food and Nutritional Chemistry

Beneficial mechanisms for dietary factors through modulating metabolic functions are investigated with animals and human cell lines, elucidating intestinal absorption systems and epithelial signal transductions, especially in anti-carcinogenesis. Using the information, food and nutritional chemistry are lectured on.

Food factors show various activities; antioxidative activity, antimutagenesis, induction of apoptosis, immnomodulative activity and detoxification, resulting in prevention of life-related diseases.
