Comment from Professor KAWAMURA Shoji:
"Evolution" is the center of my academic interest. I have a deep attachment to the Society of Evolutionary Studies because I have regularly participated in the Society of Evolutionary Studies, Japan from the former entity and was one of the founder of the society when it was established in 1999. When I was a graduate student, I had opportunities to attend Professor KIMURA Motoo's lectures and the neutral theory of molecular evolution has been my research backbone. Therefore, I am very much honored to receive the Eminent Evolutionalist Award and the Kimura Motoo Award. Moreover, I am newly determined to continue devote myself in research and will contribute to evolutionary studies.
