Honors

  • In 2000, Ciechanover received the Albert Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research.
  • In 2003, he was awarded the Israel Prize, for biology.
  • In 2004, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his discovery with Avram Hershko and Irwin Rose, 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 cancer, muscular and neurological diseases, and immune and inflammatory responses.
  • In 2005, he received the Golden Plate Award of the American Academy of Achievement.
  • In 2006, he was awarded the Sir Hans Krebs Medal.
  • In 2008. he was conferred Hon. DSc by NCKU Taiwan
  • In 2009, he was conferred an Honorary Doctorate in Science by the University of Cambodia.
