Jul-16 7 pm Zoom: Impacting Science from a Small Country – Q&A w Nobel Prize laureate

Read on for article

Over the past two decades, eight Israeli scientists have won the Nobel Prize, an extraordinary achievement for a country of its size and population.


Winning a Nobel prize is an honour that is reserved for a few extraordinary people. It is the highest recognition a scientist can achieve; it’s like winning the Oscars for best actor, an Emmy for the best song, or winning a Tennis grand slam.

In 2004, Prof. Aaron Ciechanover and colleagues, Prof. Avram Hershco and Prof. Irwin Rose received the prestige Nobel prize in Chemistry for their discovery of the Ubiquitin protein. This discovery enables the process by which the cells of most living organisms remove unwanted proteins and it has completely transformed the way cancer and other degenerative diseases are treated.

Technion Australia and the Australia Academy of Science are honoured to welcome Prof. Ciechanover at our next webinar.

In conversation with Anna-Maria Arabia, CEO of the Australian Academy of Science, Ciechanover will discuss the future of medicine and cancer research, talk about Israel’s unique entrepreneurial ecosystem and how it impacts global research, and share from his journey to winning a Nobel prize.
