Ceremony, Award Lecture and Poster Session

Japan Bioindustry Association (JBA) celebrated the 30th anniversary of its foundation this year. Concomitantly with this anniversary, JBA evolved previous awards to newly established "Japan Bioindustry Award" and "Bioindustry Research Award". The Japan Bioindustry Award is given to an incomparable work which has contributed significantly to bioindustry’s development or envisaging significant industry development in near future. The Bioindustry Research Award is given to young researchers engaged in outstanding research activities appreciating practical application potentials. Ceremony of both Japan Bioindustry Award and Bioindustry Research Award will be held with award lecture by the winner of Japan Bioindustry Award. There will also be poster presentations by ten winners of Bioindustry Research Award.
