The 2013 Weizmann Prize in Exact Sciences

The members of the jury, Prof. Haim Cedar (chairman), Prof. Shlomo Havlin and Prof Ori Cheshnovsky, decided to award the 2013 Weizmann Prize in Exact Sciences to Prof. Eshel Ben-Jacob and Prof. Shimon Yankielowicz.

"The Prize was given to Prof. Eshel Ben-Jacob for his innovative application of physical methods to the study of biological communities such as bacterial colonies, neural networks and tumors. His investigations, marked by out-of-the-box thinking, played a major role in the establishment of a new research discipline."
