The Edogawa Niche Prize

has been instituted jointly by

JINSEISHA - a Social welfare trust

which owns the Edogawa Group of Hospitals, Tokyo, Japan &

Nichi-In Centre for Regenerative Medicine (NCRM)

An Indo-Japan JV, the founding organisation of NCRM NICHE ( www.ncrmniche.org ).
The Edogawa Niche Prize is to honour individuals who are physicians and/or scientists from around the world chosen by the Jinseisha-NCRM committee, based on their contribution to development of a novel solution that enables prevention or diagnosis or treatment of any disease, which is a result of an inter-disciplinary interaction among different fields of science.



Nominations for 2021 Edogawa NICHE prize are now open.

While anyone can make a nomination, the Fujio Cup Quiz (FCQ) Elites since 2006 will have a priority channel for nomination.

As the prize is to honour a contribution through "inter-disciplinary" work, the FCQ Elites, who have walked through the portals of the Active Knowledge Gaining (AKG) event of FCQ, which has brought together an international multi-disciplinary team and have attained great heights when young, we do hope are the right referees to nominate the candidates with priority as the future is theirs.

Please visit the Edogawa NICHE Prize - Nomination Portal for more details for more details.
