Division Awards

Division of Biological Science acknowledges excellent achievements of students and researchers by offering following awards.

Yano Award

The Yano Award was established in the memory of Mr. Daisuke Yano, who passed away by a traffic accident at his 3rd year of the doctor course, from funds of the surviving family. Late Yano was a highly motivated and devoting student; he had already published his research results in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, USA (PNAS) as the first author, and was awarded the Research Fellowship (doctoral course) of Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS).

Graduating NAIST master course students who will proceed to our doctoral course are evaluated on their research achievements, and the motivation and originality of their research plans for the doctoral course by all attending professors and associate professors at their thesis presentations. One or two outstanding students are awarded this every year.
