Legendary Hollywood directors and renowned researchers awarded 2011 Dan David Prizes
Date:5/18/2011

ere is good reason to think that life-span could be extended in man, and that the onset of diseases of old age could be delayed genetically or with drugs.

The ceremony included performances by the Sally-Anne Friedland Dance Drama Company, in a dance exploring past, present and future; The Chamber Choir of Tel Aviv University's Buchmann-Mehta School of Music, which performed Miserere by Gregorio Allegri conducted by Ronen Borshevsky; and the GILA Dance Troupe, featuring 15 women in a performance about facing life's everyday challenges.

Throughout the weekend preceding the ceremony, the laureates presented a series of symposia on the Tel Aviv University campus regarding their work: Accept the Mystery with the Coen Brothers, featuring a roundtable discussion with the filmmakers and Dr. Orly Lubin, Chair of the Literature Department at Tel Aviv University and Israeli film and stage actress Dana Ivgy; New Frontiers in Evolution with Prof. Feldman; and On Genes and Aging with Prof. Kenyon and Prof. Ruvkun.

The Dan David Prize has been awarded since the year 2002 to individuals or institutions with proven, exceptional and distinct excellence in the sciences, arts, and humanities, who have made an outstanding contribution to humanity. One million dollars is awarded in each of the Prize's three dimensions of past, present, and future.

The Dan David Prize is a joint international enterprise endowed by the Dan David Foundation and headquartered at Tel Aviv University. Each year the International Board for the prize chooses one field within each time dimension. Following a review process by independent Review Committees comprised of renowned scholars and professionals, the International Board then chooses the laureates for each field.

Laureates donate 10% of their prize money towards 20 TAU scholarships for outstanding doctoral and post-doctoral students from all over the world.
