On 10 December in Stockholm, Sweden, Distinguished Professor Tasuku Honjo was awarded with a medal and certificate for this year's Nobel prize in physiology or medicine.

At a ceremony in the Stockholm Concert Hall, also attended by co-winner James P Allison of the University of Texas and other science and economics awardees, Honjo was handed his medal personally by the King of Sweden. During the presentation of the prize, attendees were also treated to an orchestral analogy of Honjo and Allison's discoveries of how the immune system could be coaxed into fighting cancer.

Following the ceremony, all awardees and attendees moved to Stockholm's historic City Hall for the official banquet, where Honjo delivered an address on behalf of himself and Allison.
