In this panel discussion as part of the Kyoto Prize at Oxford 2024 Laureates Dr Elliott H Lieb and Nalini Malani engage in a conversation with Professor Ngaire Woods, Dean of the Blavatnik School, discussing insights from their careers, future challenges and which skill each Laureates wished they had outside of their professional field. 

The Kyoto Prize is an international award founded by the Inamori Foundation to honour those who have contributed significantly to the scientific, cultural and spiritual betterment of humankind. The Blavatnik School of Government is honoured to bring the Kyoto Prize Laureates to Oxford each May.

In 2023, the Kyoto Prize was awarded to Dr Elliott H Lieb, 2023 Kyoto Prize Laureate for Basic Science, a pioneer of mathematical research in physics, chemistry, and quantum information science based on many-body physics, and to Nalini Malani, 2023 Laureate for Arts and Philosophy, an artist from the non-Western world who has faced the predicaments of the oppressed, pioneered artistic expression representing the voice of the voiceless, and contributed to the ‘decentralisation’ of art.

Dr Ryuzo Yanagimachi, the 2023 Kyoto Prize Laureate in Advanced Technology, sadly passed away last year. He is recognised for his ground-breaking work in the development of essential assisted reproductive technologies in modern society through both basic research and technological development.
