The beginning of November saw Kyoto Pharmaceutical University host the 2nd Metallomics Reserach Forum in Japan. Metallomics was very pleased to be involved with this meeting, and to see the subject growign so rapidly in Japan.
Congratulations to our Metallomics prize winners!
Shoichiro Asayama from Tokyo Metropolitan University was awarded the prize for the best presentation, and Kazumi Inagaki (National Metrology Institute of Japan) and Yutaka Yoshikawa (Kyoto Pharmaceutical University) were awarded prizes for the best posters. Well done all!
