トップページ／ニュース Professor Akira Yoshino wins Nobel Prize in Chemistry
The 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry has been awarded to Professor Akira Yoshino of Meijo University's Graduate School of Science and Technology. The reason for this recognition was due to his work on the development of lithium ion batteries in 1985.
It is certainly a great honor for Meijo University. This award follows the previous win in 2014 when Dr. Isamu Akasaki, University Professor and Distinguished Professor of Meijo University, and Dr. Hiroshi Amano, Distinguished Professor of Meijo University, were awarded the Nobel Award in Physics.
This exciting event adds another brilliant page to the tradition of Meijo University as we approach our 100th anniversary in 2026.
