Professor Foster has provided the consultants at Nikken (which sells sleep products such as mattresses and piillows) with a wealth of information and knowledge about healthy sleep.His research and work in the area of sleep dovetails perfectly into the Nikken philosophy.

As a result, Nikken was proud to present him with the award for outstanding contributions to science and for bridging the gap between academia and the business world.
