About the Fujio Cup Inagural - FCQ 2006

* Fujio cup has been established in the name of

Dr Fujio Takayama, a  devoted physician and renowned Obstetrics & Gyanecology Specialist, who has helped many young physicians and scientists from Asia with their studies in Japan.


It is he who invited Dr Samuel Abraham after his MBBS in India and helped him with his MD and PhD in Cardiac Surgery in Japan. A thoughtful reciprocation to such

magnanimity though still insignificant has made the team NCRM, name this event after him.
