U.S. cancer research group lauds Israeli scientist Alexander Levitzki


Alexander Levitzki of Hebrew University was named the recipient of the 2013 Award for Outstanding Achievement in Chemistry in Chemical Research.

The prestigious award was presented Tuesday by The American Association for Cancer Research. Levitzki also delivered a lecture to the association.

Levitzki, a professor of biological chemistry at the Alexander Silberman Institute of Life Sciences, received the honor “in recognition of his contributions to signal transduction therapy and his work on the development of tyrosine kinase inhibitors as effective agents against cancer,” according to the association.

The Israeli scientist has won numerous other prominent awards, including the Israel Prize in biochemistry and the Nauta Award in Pharmacochemistry, the highest award from the European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry.
