The title of Osaka University Distinguished Professor granted to four professors

On Thursday, November 26, the ceremony for granting of the title was held at the Convention Center on the Osaka University’s Suita Campus with measures in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The title recipients received a commemorative plaque from President Nishio. (Professor Ichi was absent due to personal reasons.)

President Nishio gave an encouraging message to the recipients, saying, “Your research achievements are connected across disciplines, utilized by society, and then returned to the university as new challenges. You are devoting yourself to research while earning honors as researchers in such a virtuous cycle. Your sincere attitude toward research will greatly affect younger researchers and encourage OU community members.”
