Prof. em. Fumitake Yoshida was one of the world#8242;s most respected chemical engineers. Most recently he was professor emeritus of chemical engineering at Kyoto University and well beyond his retirement he continued to be a visiting lecturer at universities around the world. He conducted research on various mass transfer operations, gas-liquid systems in particular, investigating their applications in bioengineering and medical technology. Yoshida received his BS and PhD degrees in engineering from Kyoto University. Among his many awards and citations was election to the National Academy of Engineering of the United States in 1979 for his leadership in chemical, biochemical, and biomedical engineering in Japan.#60;br#62;#60;br#62;Prof. Shigeo Katoh is Head of the Bioengineering Laboratory at Kobe University, Japan. He holds PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Kyoto, Japan. Prof. Katoh is an enthusiastic lecturer in Biochemical Engineering, Bioseparation Engineering and Immunotechnology. He is an outstanding expert in biochemical engineering and has published numerous papers in this field. #60;br#62;#60;br#62;#60;br#62;#60;br#62;#60;br#62;
