Dr. Toshio Yanagida

He was awarded by his revolutionary achievements such as revealing muscle contraction mechanism with creative ideas as a pioneering researcher of “single molecule measurements techniques” in biophysics.  He is promoting new research on neural network based on this idea.

Dr. Yanagida’s comment
I brought in an idea of moderateness, typical Japanese culture, into research and challenged to understand life with my professor Fumio Oosawa.  I had been arguing for a long time with the researchers around the world with the concept of “yuragi”, which is not common in Europe and the United States.  I am very happy to be rewarded.
