Special Interview with Prof. Toru Iijima, World Research Unit for Heavy Flavor Particle Physics (established in 2014)

Since 2014, Nagoya University has supported researchers in forming promising international research hubs under the "Program for Promoting the Enhancement of Research Universities."

Prof. Toru Iijima, along with Prof. Junji Hisano and Associate Prof. Makoto Tomoto, Graduate School of Science at Nagoya University, established one such research hub, the "World Research Unit for Heavy Flavor Particle Physics," adopted as a cutting-edge international research unit in 2014. As evidenced by the vigorous progress of his work, in March 2016, Prof. Iijima was awarded the Shuji Orito Prize by the Heisei Foundation for Basic Science for his world-leading research in particle physics.


*Special thanks to Prof. Peter Krizan of the Jožef Stefan Institute in Slovenia and Prof. Abner Soffer of Tel Aviv University in Israel for participating in the interview with Prof. Iijima and sharing their frank opinions.
