Past Grantees

Grantees 1996

In 1995, Mizutani Foundation for Glycoscience received 201 research grant applications from 21 countries. After careful evaluation for scientific merit, potentiality and feasibility, the foundation approved seventeen projects and awarded a total of 100,000,000 yen to them plus two projects that had been approved for two years in the previous year.
