In recent years, combined research in the fields of biomaterials and regenerative medicine is accelerating rapidly, and various efforts toward practical application are being made. The fusion of excellence in materials engineering, life science, and the related discipline of systems engineering is essential for this area. This Prize shall be awarded to outstanding researchers who have demonstrated unique, internationally renowned achievements in research, made significant contributions to the field of regenerative medicine particularly through novel biomaterials discovery, and continued to work in the frontline of research. We hope that this Prize will be a great source of encouragement to researchers, resulting in the further evolution of research towards practical application and a brighter future for humankind.
