Professor KITA Kiyoshi, Dean of the Graduate School of Tropical Medicine and Global Health, has been selected for inclusion in the 2021 edition of the Asian Scientist 100, recently published by Singapore’s Asian Scientist Magazine.
Now in its sixth edition, the Asian Scientist 100 celebrates the achievements of the region’s most outstanding scientists, highlighting their work across a range of scientific disciplines. To be included in the list, a scientist must have won a national or international award in 2020, and must have demonstrated outstanding scientific discovery or leadership in advancing academia or industry.
Professor Kita was selected for the 2020 Duke of Edinburgh Award from the Japan Academy for his research into the survival and adaptation strategies of tropical pathogenic microorganisms such as parasites.
This is the first time Nagasaki University has been selected for this prize.
