Reiji Okazaki
(1930 – 1975)
was a Japanese
molecular biologist
known for his
research in DNA
replication and especially for
describing the role of so-called
Okazaki fragments which he
discovered working
with his wife
Tsuneko Okazaki
in 1968.

Reiji Okazaki was born in
Hiroshima, Japan. He graduated
in 1953 from Nagoya University,
and worked as a professor there
after 1963. Okazaki died of
leukemia only a few years after
his discovery. He was exposed to
heavy radiation when he was in
Hiroshima when the first atomic
bomb was dropped.
