Story of Satoshi Omura: Written by Rensei Baba

From the square banner on the right, you can read the life story of Dr. Satoshi Omura who received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine together with Dr. William Campbell for the discovery of ivermectin, a remedy for river blindness prevalent in the African tropics. Before going into his life as a researcher, the author goes back to his family background, elementary school to university days, his teaching experience and how it lead to his entry into graduate school to start his career as a researcher. We hope his story could be an inspiration to your future.
