Hebrew U profs win Columbia science prize

(JTA) – Two Hebrew University of Jerusalem professors seen as pioneers in the field of epigenetics were honored with an award often seen as a precursor to a Nobel Prize. Howard Cedar and Aharon Razin have received Columbia University’s 2016 Horwitz Prize, the school announced on Sept. 5. Gary Felsenfeld of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, also was awarded the prize. Forty-three previous Horwitz Prize winners have gone on to win the Nobel.
