Qian Qian

Deputy Director, China National Rice Research Institute (CNRRI)

As an Alumnus of Hokkaido University, it was a pleasant surprise when I received the offer to become a Hokkaido University Ambassador. I am honored and will do my best to do something useful for HU.

I enrolled in the Agricultural College of Hokkaido University to study genetics and breeding in 1986 and got my master’s degree in 1989. At Hokkaido University, I systematically studied the genetics and breeding of rice and compared the advances of the research of rice between Japan and China, which offered me a good foundation for my career. The time I spent at HU was a very valuable and unforgettable experience. I will do my best to promote the discipline and development of Hokkaido University and wish that HU can develop its own unique style among the world’s famous universities.
