At the Faculty of Agriculture, Department of Food Sciences and Biotechnology, Kagoshima University, Japan, Dr. Katsuko Kajiya and her team are researching the bioregulatory functions of agricultural products and how they can be beneficial to health. The researchers are working to scientifically elucidate the function of foods, looking at the disease prevention mechanisms and physiological functions of certain food ingredients.
