Ehime University Faculty of Agriculture / Graduate School of Agriculture

Course of Applied Bioscience

This course offers education and research in wide-ranging fields, from the basics of clarifying biological phenomena at the levels of the molecule, cell and individual, to applications using biotechnology such as gene recombination and cell culture.

Using these advantages to the maximum, we aim to foster personnel who have broad knowledge and strong problem-solving capabilities and can play an active role in many industries such as food products and chemicals.

Production of useful substances by microorganisms, improvement in fermentation technology, and development and application of microbe resources.

Masafumi MARUYAMA , Senior Assistant Professor
Fermentation Chemistry

We are investigating microbial biochemistry and fermentation physiology by the analysis based on genomic information and molecular biological techniques to obtaining basic information that contributes to next-generation fermentation technology.

Yoshitaka ANO , Associate Professor
Animal Cell Technology

We are investigating bio-functional substances such as immunostimulating factors and anti-cancer substances by using animal cell technology and molecular biological techniques.

Takuya SUGAHARA , Professor,

Kosuke NISHI , Associate Professor
Molecular Physiology and Genetics

Grounded on molecular biology and gene technology, we are going to investigate diversity, physiological functions, molecular mechanism and regulation of active transport systems in cells against environmental stress.

Takayuki SEKITO , Professor,

Miyuki KAWADA , Associate Professor,

Koichi AKIYAMA , Associate Professor
Molecular and Cellular Functions

Each type of organelle has a distinctive role in the cellular functions. We seek to understand organelle activities, such as biogenesis and metabolisms, at the molecular level.

Mitsuru AKITA , Associate Professor

Community Health and Nutrition

We teach epidemiology and human nutrition. Also, we use the approaches of nutritional epidemiology to do research on the association between dietary habits (i.e. food and nutrient intakes, eating behaviors, and eating foods with function claims) and human health.
