Yamagiwa-Yoshida Memorial International Cancer Study Grants (Y-Y Grant) was launched in 1975 and has been managed by Japan National Committee for UICC (UICC-Japan) in collaboration with UICC Geneva office to date. UICC-Japan established this Y-Y grant to promote international collaboration and knowledge transfer among cancer investigators at global level by allowing grant recipients (YY fellows) to perform their research projects in the labs abroad and develop new skills, including innovative experimental methods. We have received more than 450 applications from ~60 countries and more than 150 fellowships were awarded for the last 15 years. Although the length of their stay is within 3 months, it resulted in the creation of tight partnerships between the hosts who often are world-class researchers, and YY fellows who possess the potential to become leaders in their field. UICC-Japan is very proud of our long-standing contribution to UICC by supporting YYGrant and would like to express deep gratitude to Japanese companies (Olympus Co., Kyowa Hakko-Kirin and Toray Ind.) for their financial support which has made this contribution possible.
