Hiroshi Kitazato was awarded the 2016 Joseph A. Cushman Award for Excellence in Foraminiferal Research at the Annual Cushman Reception on 27 September 2016, in Denver, Colorado. The award was conferred to him due to his pioneering and highly original biological and ecological studies of benthic foraminifera, especially his culturing studies and innovative in situ deep-sea experiments. Additionally, the award recognizes his promotion of integrated foraminiferal research to the forefront of Japanese and global ocean sciences by establishing an integrated biogeochemical research center, by mentoring dozens of students, and initiating and sustaining a plethora of international collaborations.
