Shinsuke Ifuku is a full professor of the Graduate School of Engineering, Tottori University, Japan. He graduated from the Kyoto University and received his Ph.D. of agriculture in 2005. Special attention is dedicated to the development of chitin nanofibers. Chitin nanofibers are fine nanofiber extracted from crab shell waste with 10 nm thick. Chitin nanofiber is a homogeneous water dispersion with efficient physical properties and fine nano-morphology. They showed abundant biological properties after skin or oral administrations. He established a venture company, with the name of MARINE NANOFIBER in 2016 to enhance the commercial application of the novel nanomaterial prepared from food waste.
