Editorial Comment to the Special Issue of IMARS Highlights
This is a special issue for the celebration of the 12th International Symposium on the Millard Reaction (ISMR) held in Tokyo (September 1-4, 2015), which is organized by IMARS and Japanese Society of Millard Reaction (JMARS). This issue is specially distributed to the participants of the ISMR.
In this special issue, we invited three presidents of the IMARS, who greatly contribute to the development of IMARS as well as food and medical sciences related to glycation: a former president, Professor Vincenzo Fogliano at Wageningen University (The Netherlands), a present president, Professor Teruo Miyazawa at Tohoku University (Japan), and a president-elect, Professor Varoujan Yaylayan at McGill University (Canada). They kindly wrote the meaningful and encouraging messages to all of the IMARS members, who are studying in the field of food science and medicine.
We believe that you will be able to find the important key words to enhance your scientific motivation from their massages based on the history and perspective of science of Millard reaction.
