Akiyama on his scientific mentor: “Professor Teruaki Mukaiyama, who was my Ph.D. adviser, is my scientific role model. He always stressed the importance of finding novel synthetic reactions from scratch rather than improving the known reactions.”

What his colleagues say: “On the basis of his established impact on the field of enantioselective organic synthesis and for his outstanding contributions to the field of organic chemistry, I can think of no other chemist in his age group more deserving of this prestigious award.”—Michael Krische, University of Texas, Austin
