The Japan Prize Foundation (President: Hiroshi Komiyama) held an award ceremony on Tuesday, April 16 at the Imperial Hotel Tokyo in Tokyo’s Chiyoda Ward to confer the Japan Prize on scientists who have made creative and dramatic achievements in the global scientific and technological fields and who have contributed significantly to realizing peace and prosperity for all humanity.
