Dr. Daniela Rotin

Daniela Rotin was honoured by the Israel Cancer Research Fund (IRCF) as a recipient of the prestigious “Women of Action” award at a gala event held at the Sheraton Hotel in Toronto on May 3, 2011.

Founded in 1975, IRCF is one of the largest private sources of funding for cancer research in Israel and has helped to support the early work of scientists such as 2004 Nobel laureates Aaron Ciechanover and Avram Hershko, discoverers of the ubiquitin proteostasis system. For many years Daniela has served on the ICRF scientific review panel that selects research grant award winners through a rigorous peer-review system. Close to 2,000 grants totalling over $40M have been awarded with funds raised by ICRF at events like the gala held in Toronto.

Congratulations to Daniela for this important recognition.
