Shunichi Fukuzumi earned a bachelor's degree and PhD. degree in applied chemistry at Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1973 and 1978, respectively. After working as a postdoctoral fellow (1978-1981) at Indiana University in USA, he joined the Department of Applied Chemistry, Osaka University in 1981 and was promoted to a Full Professor in 1994. Professor Fukuzumi has authored over 600 scientific publications. He is the director of a SORST (Solution Oriented Research for Science and Technology) project. He is also the leader of a Global COE program, Global Education and Research Center for Bio-Environmental Chemistry that started in 2007.
