The Division is dedicated to research including analytical chemistry, allergy & immunology, molecular cell biology, and radiochemistry to understand complex biological systems. Substances in medical and biotechnology products can unexpectedly cause allergic and toxic reactions.

Our mission is to predict and evaluate the substances that may show allergenicity and toxicity based on solid scientific evidence to contribute risk assessment. Members participate in scientific committees such as the Food Safety Commission.


Radiation management, study on the quality of radiopharmaceuticals, and the development of analytical methods for radioactive materials in environments.


Investigating analytical methods for detecting allergenic substances in processed foods and novel pathways of sensitization to food allergens.


Development of new analytical methods for biotechnology products such as genetically modified organism (GMO) based on genomic sequences.


Decipher biological function/mechanism of compounds in medical products and biotechnology foods to understand how compounds affect human.
