Past Grantees

Grantees 1993-4

In 1993, Mizutani Foundation for Glycoscience received 326 research grant applications from 31 countries. After a careful evaluation for scientific merit, potentiality, and feasibility, the foundation selected 22 of the applications and awarded them a total of 150,000,000 yen.
