Celebrating Professor David Farber's Election as a Fellow by the AAAS (KGRI researcher networking event)


Over 100 members are affiliated to KGRI research projects. Because they belong to various faculties, graduate schools, research centers, and institutes at the university and are active at each of its campuses or off-site, researcher networking events are held about twice a year. These events are an opportunity for researchers specializing in different fields to meet, discuss, and share details of their research at KGRI.

At the outset of the researcher networking event held on November 30, KGRI Director Masato Yasui (Professor, School of Medicine) announced the joyous news that Professor David Farber (KGRI Distinguished Professor) was named as an Elected Fellow by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), which was celebrated by those in attendance.
