Nutritional epidemiological studies

Seeking to achieve the highest standards in nutritional epidemiological studies on the prevention of lifestyle-related diseases and the prolongation of health longevity

We currently perform the following research projects: 1) investigation into the etiology that has not been clarified so far; 2) development of new methods for screening, diagnosis, and dietary treatment; 3) discovery of new findings and suggestions on the hypotheses/mechanisms; 4) introduction to medical care and health checkup/medical examinations; and 5) establishment of evaluation methods on primary prevention of lifestyle-related diseases according to dietary modification. To make evidence-based nutrition (EBN) recommendations, we train our personnel to be leaders in the field; these leaders are recognized nationally and internationally for their expertise.


1. Nutritional epidemiological studies on the prevention of lifestyle-related diseases and the prolongation of health longevity
We aim to achieve the highest standards in nutritional epidemiological studies, and pay special attention to examining multilateral relationships between dietary food/nutrient intake and the risk of lifestyle-related diseases, such as cancer, coronary heart diseases, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and diabetes mellitus.
2. Clinical-epidemiological studies using biomarkers of specific food/nutrient intakes
The mission of our laboratory is to more fully understand the interactions between lifestyle-related diseases, drug treatment, and dietary food/nutrient intake, using the appropriate biological makers in blood and urine.
3. The Japan multi-institutional collaborative cohort study (J-MICC Study)
To further assess gene-environment interactions of lifestyle-related diseases, the J-MICC Study is supported by a research grant for Scientific Research on Special Priority Areas of Cancer from the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. Our collaborative work is based in the Shizuoka-Sakuragaoka area. Visit http://www.jmicc.com/index.html(in Japanese) for more information.
