Dear Distinguished Scientists,

I am thrilled to present the fifth newsletter of the year 2023 from the VinFuture Foundation. Kindly click here to read the newsletter.

With the last quarter of 2023 now upon us, we are diligently preparing for the grand event – the VinFuture Prize Award Ceremony. At present, the majority of our Laureates have been selected, and we are eagerly approaching the moment when we can officially honor these exceptional individuals whose contributions have had a profound impact on our world.

Within this newsletter, I am delighted once again, to extend our congratulations to the 2021 VinFuture Grand Prize Laureates, Dr. Katalin Kariko and Prof. Drew Weissman, for having been honored with the 2023 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. In addition, I am excited to share several details regarding the upcoming Award Ceremony Week scheduled for December. Our agenda features an engaging lineup of events, including four thought-provoking “Science for Life” Symposia:

We are also thrilled to extend a warm welcome to members of our Councils who will be attending the VinFuture Prize Award Ceremony in Vietnam for the first time. These distinguished individuals include Prof. Soumitra Dutta, Prof. Pascale Cossart, and Mr. Akihisa Kakimoto.
