While paying tribute to the long-sustained research endeavors of Their Majesties, Emperor Showa and the Emperor Emeritus, the International Prize for Biology gives prestigious recognition to biologists around the world who have made superlative contributions to advancing their fields of biological science.

The Prize is presented every year in a dedicated ceremony. The Prize consisting of a certificate, medal and purse of 10-milion yen is given to the recipient. In conjunction with the ceremony, an international symposium is held in which the Prize recipient is invited to give a special lecture.
