The International Prize for Biology was instituted in April of 1985 by the Committee on the International Prize for Biology. It aims to commemorate the sixty-year reign of Emperor Showa and his longtime devotion to biological research and also to offer tribute to His Majesty the Emperor Emeritus, who has strived over many years to advance the study taxonomy of gobioid fishes while contributing continuously to the developing of this Prize. The award ceremony is held every year.
This year, the Committee on the International Prize for Biology of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science decided to award the 38th (2022) International Prize for Biology to Dr. Katsumi Tsukamoto, Professor Emeritus, The University of Tokyo, Japan. This year’s Prize is awarded in the field of the Biology of Fishes.
Commemorative Symposium for the 38th International Prize for Biology "Biology of Fishes: Ecology, Evolution and Development" will be held on December 17-18, 2022.
The first day is an international symposium for researchers; the second day is a symposium for the general public and will be held in Japanese. We look forward to seeing you there.
