We are making efforts to meet unmet medical needs and contribute to medical advancement.
In 1988, the ONO Medical Research Foundation was established with donations from ONO. The Foundation provides grants for research activities in the field of lipid metabolism disorders and also aims to promote research and treatment in that field through various projects and thereby contribute to the health and welfare of the public. Since its establishment, the foundation has provided research grants and research encouragement grants every year. In FY2020, 1 person was awarded the Osamu Hayaishi Memorial Award, 12 persons were awarded research grants, and 16 persons were awarded research encouragement grants (Under age of 40).
In addition, since FY2017, we have supported the Japanese Biochemical Society's "Osamu Hayaishi Memorial Scholarship for Study Abroad“, which assists researchers who are willing to research biochemistry-related life sciences in general in studying abroad, from FY2017. In January 2021, 8 researchers were selected as scholarship winners in FY2021.Through the Ono Pharmaceutical Foundation's research grants to overseas researchers, we also contribute to promoting research and the foundation of innovation.
