JAPAN'S TASUKU HONJO, a professor of immunology of Kyoto University, won the 2018 Nobel Prize in medicine, together with the James Allison, a professor of immunology with the University of Texas of the United States, for their research that has revolutionized the treatment of cancer last week. Xinhua News Agency comments:

Japanese scientists have brought home 18 Nobel Prizes over the past 18 years, during which their Chinese counterparts have secured only one - pharmaceutical chemist Tu Youyou, won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2015 for her groundbreaking work on malaria in the 1960s.

Undoubtedly, China can learn a lot from Japan on how to strengthen its scientific research. Long-term stable support for fundamental research, a strong crisis awareness, and paying great attention to cultivating young scientists and researchers are the three pillars of Japan's scientific research success.
