We deeply recognize
that the 21 century is the era of individual self-care, which means people
themselves are responsible for their health, and we place importance on the enhancement of
the body's innate healing power. Aiming to achieve it, we, at NPO Research Institute of
Fucoidan, place our focus on and perform studies of fucoidan which has a great potential.
Director Tachikawa has been appointed as a visiting professor, Kyushu University Graduate School, starting April 1, 2023. As a research supervisor, he will focus on fucoidan research and educational activities in the Donated Laboratory of Analytical Food Immunoscience.
