Summary

TOKYO-- Endocrinologist Hiroo Imura, former president of Kyoto University, was appointed last week to one of two full-time positions at the prime minister's Council for Science and Technology, which will be given broader authority under a government-wide reorganization scheduled to go into effect in 2001. Coincidentally, that reorganization, which will merge the country's two major pillars of research funding, the Science and Technology Agency and the Ministry of Education, Science, Sports, and Culture (Monbusho), was also approved last week by the Japanese Diet.
