Professor Jon Njardarson has been honored with a prestigious Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Fellowship. This fellowship is awarded to scientists in various disciplines, including a few chemists each year. In 2003, this honor was also bestowed on Professor Michael Brown (CBC). The JSPS will sponsor Professor Njardarson’s visit to Japan where he will present his science at multiple universities, research institutions and other venues. Professor Yujiro Hayashi will be Professor Njardarson’s host during his visit.
