“Food and Health”is the major theme of the current research-oriented project, Knowledge Cluster Initiatives, Sapporo Bio-S. This project is uniquely designed to apply science-based outcomes of functional foods for the promotion of food business in Hokkaido. With cooperative work by all memebers, not only in agricultural and marine businesses, but also in the fields of medicine and nutrition, the goal is set to raise market values of agricultural and marine products originating in Hokkaido. To complete this goal, we have established the “Clinical Trial System” in Ebetsu City located in central Hokkaido to evaluate the safety and functions of foods for human health. The unit provides cost-effective and highly-qualified medical service. It is our great pleasure to introduce this human clinical trial system to both researchers in food science and people in food industries. We honestly believe that this system will enhance the development of food science and economic activities in Hokkaido.
