Valor and V Drug Overseas Training Scholarship Report Session

Gifu University started a scholarship from the university fund called, "Valor and V Drug Overseas Training Scholarship" in 2014 through donations from Valor Holdings and Valor Drug Store (V Drug). Its purposes are to help graduate students take the courses for credits and be engaged in research at universities and institutions overseas.

Mr. Kazuya Yagyu, a second-year student of the Graduate School of Natural Science and Technology, Ms. Hiroe Ando, a second-year student of the Graduate School of Engineering and Mr. Tatsuya Banno, a second-year student of the Graduate School of Natural Science conducted their research overseas on the scholarship. The three reported their experiences at Valor Holding building (Tajimi City, Gifu Prefecture) on January 21, 2019.

The research theme of Mr. Yagyu who studied at the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, National Institutes of Health (U.S.A.) was the improvement of protein analysis method. Ms. Ando researched the transportation network at The University of Sydney (Australia), and Mr. Banno carried out composite material experiments at The University of British Colombia (Canada).

In the meeting, the three reported to Mr. Masami Tashiro, president of Valor Holdings that they are still in close contact with the universities they studied, and keep on involving in joint research projects and discussions.

"All three had wonderful experiences overseas. Going through difficulties and taking up big challenges early in life will be a real asset for you. Please keep up a good work," said Mr. Tashiro.

The University Fund will continue to support highly-motivated, hard-working students who are willing to tackle great challenges head-on to carve out their own future.
