IsSDB Newsletter #2
The IsSDB Career Award
The IsSDB steering committee has recently established a new award for recognizing Israeli scientists who significantly contributed to the field of Developmental Biology and to the development of the field in Israel. The winners are chosen by an ad-hoc award advisory committee, composed of representatives from the major Israeli universities, members of the steering committee, and representative scientists from overseas
We are delighted to announce Prof. Ben-Zion (Benny) Shilo from the Weizmann Institute as the winner of the 2017 IsSDB career award. The award will be given at the opening of the annual IsSDB 1-day symposium on “Developmental Cell Death” on June 18, 2017, at the Weizmann Institute. The ceremony will be followed by Prof. Shilo’s lecture.
