I'm extremely pleased to hear that Osaka University's Professor Emeritus SHIBA Yoshinobu (Graduate School of Letters) and Professor Emeritus MATSUBARA Kenichi (Institute for Molecular and Cellular Biology) were selected to receive the Order of Culture, and Professor Emeritus MURAI Shinji (Graduate School of Engineering) and Specially Appointed Professor SAKAGUCHI Shimon (Immunology Frontier Research Center) were selected as Persons of Cultural Merit.

I'd like to express my happiness and utmost respect for the professors honored by these awards, whose outstanding research results have now come to fruition.

Orders of Culture and Persons of Cultural Merit are great honors for Osaka University, and a dream come true for members of the OU family.

So to these professors, I offer my heartfelt congratulations and hope for their good health and continued success in the future.

We at Osaka University will use these achievements as motivation to further develop and expand the university moving forward.
