Takashi Fujita, University of Kyoto, Japan. Prof. Fujita has contributed enormously to our knowledge about how RNA viruses are recognized and how this recognition leads to IFN production. Among his many merits are the discovery of the Rig-I like receptors and the co-discovery of the IRF family of transcription factors, which has also led to more than 20 000 citations.
