Each year, the Tokyo Tech Challenging Research Award is given to young faculty members who undertake bold and original research, promote advancement in cutting-edge fields, and develop innovative solutions to key issues. This award is also designed to provide support for research expenses, and many recipients go on to earn other commendations and prizes from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. This year marked the 17th time Tokyo Tech granted its promising researchers this award.

Congratulations to all of the 2018 recipients!
