A Cadre of Professional Fucoidan Researchers

We are advancing research on the functions of high- polymer fucoidan.

Minoru Funakoshi

Minoru Funakoshi, Ph.D.

Chief researcher of R&D Division

Main project: Research on the material sea algae and the character of fucoidan

I am engaged in research on fucoidan from sea algae except mozuku and kinds of other polysaccharides to compare their effects. In addition, I am continuing to apply microbiological technique for revealing the functions of fucoidan.

Sunao Abe

Senior researcher of R&D Division 

Main project: Research on the relationship between maintaining human health and fucoidan intake

I am exploring the functionality of fucoidan by conducting research on healthy people. I am working on the commercialization of new uses for fucoidan and am working to publish scientific findings on fucoidan.

Satoshi Kasagi

Satoshi Kasagi, Ph.D.

Researcher of R&D Division

Main project: Data collection and analysis about fucoidan information

I collect and analyze a vast amount of information on fucoidan and its functions, and formulate research plans.In addition, using my experience and knowledge in fisheries science research, I am working to further broaden the use of fucoidan and its seaweed functions.
