University of Kyoto (Kyoto University)

Kyoto University was founded in 1897 as the second oldest imperial university in Japan. Since that time, Kyoto University has remained faithful to its principle of “academic freedom” and has focused its efforts in developing a strong sense of purpose reflected in its mission statement: “To sustain and develop its historical commitment to academic freedom and pursue a state of harmonious coexistence within the human and ecological community on this planet.” Recognized as one of Japan’s foremost research institutions, the achievements of Kyoto University’s scholars are acknowledged throughout the world. A prominent recent example was the awards of the 2012 and 2018 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine to Dr. Shinya Yamanaka of the Center for iPS Cell Research and Application for his unique discoveries in the field of stem cell research and to Dr. Tasuku Honjo of Professor at Department of Immunology and Genomic Medicine for his discovery of the PD-L1-targeted cancer immunotherapy. *
