According to the announcement, Professor Kato lorenson from the United States won awards for his innovative work in clinical application of biomaterial regeneration engineering and stem cell science. Another winner is Professor Kevin McGuigan from Ireland, who developed solar disinfection technology to help people in Africa and Asia get clean drinking water.
