Announcing a New Scholarship: Kuro Murase MD-JMSA Scholarship

Dear JMSA Family and Friends,

We are proud to announce a new scholarship, Kuro Murase MD-JMSA Scholarship, sponsored by Mr. Satoru Murase in honor of his late grandfather who was one of the first Japanese doctors to practice in NY.

Mr. Satoru Murase’s grandfather Dr. Kuro Murase was a surgeon at what is now called Nagoya University Medical Graduate School and served in the Russo Japanese war front. Dr. Murase came to New York in about 1911 and studied Ophthalmology at Bellevue Hospital. He knew both Dr. Hideyo Noguchi and Dr. Takamine well. 

Please join us in thanking the Murase family for their generosity.
