Drive for the Nobel features talks by Nobel Laureates Yuan T. Lee (Chemistry, 1986), Saul Perlmutter (Physics, 2011) and Takaaki Kajita (Physics, 2015). Focusing on how the prize impacts research within universities and broadly across communities, these laureates will examine the Nobel’s impact on communities and potential long term implications for research.
Since 2012 the Center for Japanese Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, and the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science have co-sponsored annual international symposiums on a variety of topics concerning research on Japan. This year the symposium, Drive for the Nobel Prize, will be examining Nobel-caliber research at Berkeley and in Asia.
