The Fukusaki Laboratory, established in 2007, is now in its 17th year. As we advocated at the time of our establishment, our mission is to promote science with metabolomics (metabolite profiling) as its core competence and to develop human resources to become international leaders in the biotechnology industry. We focus on the management of "food functions" and "freshness of food" and strive to develop technologies and applications that contribute to improving the quality of life through food.


In addition to the ability to define and solve problems, leaders are required to have the ability to organize and manage teams. These abilities cannot be acquired by merely accumulating knowledge. In addition to "Thesis Research" and "Laboratory Seminar," the Fukusaki Lab. offers a program that includes a unique "Practical Metabolomics Training Course" to efficiently develop the above abilities. We also provide graduate students with opportunities for internship-in-lab through active participation in joint research with companies. The graduate students are expected to become world-class researchers in the field of metabolomics research, and to acquire the active skills necessary to compete as leaders. In addition, we will strive to develop international human resources who can contribute to the SDGs, which are important issues in the world.
