Research Highlight

We are actively engaged in challenging projects that enable us to integrate local wisdom with technology in order to develop the innovations for enhancing human performance at all age groups and preventing chronic non-communicating diseases.

The key research themes of HHP&HP are focusing on the developments of functional foods and ingredients, cosmeceutical and health products, role of nutrigenomic and nutriepigenetic and precise nutrition. The development of cognitive enhancer program in education and the integrative complementary alternative medicine such as laser acupuncture, aromatherapy, music and art therapy are also included.
Our research experts can assist the manufacturer to develop innovative food and health products and scale up the successful prototype to small scale production for market test. In addition, the value creation of waste and by products are also serviced.
