Human Frontier Science Program



The International Human Frontier Science Program Organization (HFSPO) invites nominations for the 2022 HFSP Nakasone Award, an annual award for ground-breaking contributions or breakthrough discoveries in the life sciences.

This award recognizes the vision of former Prime Minister Nakasone of Japan in the creation of the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) whose aim is “to promote, through international cooperation, basic research focused on the elucidation of the sophisticated and complex mechanisms of living organisms.”

The HFSP Nakasone Award recognizes achievements in scientific excellence that have moved the frontiers of knowledge in biology. The award is for a particular discovery or set of discoveries. It is not a life-time achievement award.

A list of former winners is on the HFSP website at http://www.hfsp.org/awardees/hfsp-nakasone-award. The selection of the award winner will be made by the Council of Scientists at their meeting in July 2021.

Nomination form and complete instructions can be accessed here. Questions should be directed via email to Nisha Garg.
