The Call for Nominations of 2019 (35th) International Prize for Biology was opened.
The International Prize for Biology is a commemorative prize to celebrate the sixty-year reign of Emperor Showa and his longtime devotion to biological research. It also pays tribute to the present Emperor, His Majesty, Emperor Akihito, who has striven for many years to advance the study of gobioid fish taxonomy while contributing continuously to the developing of this Prize.
Based on nominations gathered from around the world, the Prize is awarded annually to a researcher who has made an outstanding contribution to make advance in biological sciences.
The research field of this year’s Prize is “Biology of Insects.” In this regard, I would like to invite you to nominate a recipient for the 2018 Prize.
