    The ceremony was held on March 19 at Sorbonne University (Paris). Mio Ozawa, Post-doctoral fellow of the Department of Environmental Medicine, Faculty of Medical Sciences, Kyushu University, was the first Japanese woman to receive the L'OREAL-UNESCO International Fellowships Programme for Young Women in Life Sciences 2014.
  The L'OREAL-UNESCO International Fellowships programme was created by The L'Oréal Group and UNESCO to support young female scientists whose promising research projects have a potential impact on human well-being and the environment.
  Each year, 15 doctoral or post-doctoral young researchers in the life sciences are awarded International Fellowships with 40,000 USD to widen their scope of expertise at recognized research institutions outside their home countries.

  Dr. Ozawa is in the team of the Hisayama study, which is the broad-based community study being conducted in the town of Hisayama, Fukuoka prefecture, and has found an association between dietary patterns and the risk of dementia in the elderly population of Japan. Two of their studies were approved.
 Dr. Ozawa will be continuing her research at University of London, England.
