“In memory of Dr. Ryuzo Yanagimachi (Yana) (1928–2023)” has been published.

A paper co-authored by Dr. Ogura in our lab and Professor Wakayama (Univ. of Yamanashi) has been published. The paper is a memorial to Professor Emeritus Ryuzo Yanagimachi of the University of Hawaii, a mentor of Drs. Ogura and Wakayama. Professor Yanagimachi was a great researcher in fertilization, ICSI, freeze-dried sperm, and cloning, and continued his research on fertilization of various organisms after his retirement. Unfortunately, he passed away in September 2023 after the announcement of his Kyoto Prize award.
