<Comments from Dr. Takao Yasui on receiving the award>

In order to address the social challenge of achieving a healthy and long-lived society, innovative methods of analyzing the exosome has been coveted by cancer and other medical researchers around the world.

Based on an elaborate nanospace design strategy, I have successfully realized an exosome analysis method that was previously thought to be impossible.

This technology led to the co-founding of Icaria. We will continue to contribute to the promotion of health and medical-related industries and the extension of healthy life expectancy through the development of technology for early cancer diagnosis.
