CONGRATULATIONS! Nobel Prize Winner Avram Hershko has been JEST’s Honor Committee Member

 

On 17th, Oct, 2017, JEST has successfully invited 2004 Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry Avram Hershko to be our Honor Committee Member. Prof. Hershko will participate as International Expert and Advisory for JEST’s future development.

 

 

 

 

Avram Hershko[1] was born Herskó Ferenc in Karcag, Hungary, the son of Shoshana Margit and Moshe Hershko, both teachers. Hershko emigrated to Israel in 1950. He received his M.D. in 1965 and his Ph.D in 1969 from the Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical School, Jerusalem, Israel. He is currently a Distinguished Professor at the Rappaport Faculty of Medicine at the Technion in Haifa.

 

 

 

Along with Aaron Ciechanover and Irwin Rose, Avram Hershko was awarded the 2004 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery of ubiquitin-mediated protein degradation. The ubiquitin-proteasome pathway has a critical role in maintaining the homeostasis of cells and is believed to be involved in the development and progression of diseases such as cancer, muscular and neurological diseases, and immune and inflammatory responses.
