[Message from Shodai]
I am honored to receive the School of Integrative and Global Majors Dean's Award. This award recognizes my work on laboratory automation. Laboratory automation refers to the technique of controlling experimental devices and measuring instruments without human intervention, and collecting and analyzing data. Because it is an essential field for accelerating life sciences, I work hard every day to contribute to its advancement in the future.
This accomplishment is not mine alone, but it would not have been possible without the support and cooperation of my mentors, lab members, and SIGMA staff. In particular, my sub mentor, Professor Haruka Ozaki, led the research project, and my main mentor, Professor Kenji Irie, provided guidance and advice on research strategy and methodology. I also greatly appreciated the advice on development and more from the members of LASA (Laboratory Automation Supplier's Association). I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all of them.
Encouraged by this award, I will continue to conduct interdisciplinary research in the spirit of Humanics.
