The Asian Scientist Magazine provides news and updates in the fields of medicine and science and technology to Asian readers.
Researchers, academicians, innovators and business leaders from across the Asia Pacific region were handpicked for their scientific discovery or contribution to the academia and industry.
Only recipients of national or international prizes for scientific research in 2014 to 2015 were qualified for the selection.
The scientists were divided into 10 categories: aerospace and astronomy, agricultural sciences, biomedical sciences, chemistry, engineering, environmental sciences and geology, information technology, leadership, material science, and mathematics.
