Kovchegov wins Sackler Prize

Yuri Kovchegov, assistant professor of physics, won the 2006 Raymond and Beverly Sackler Prize in the Physical Sciences, which is administered by Tel Aviv University. He shares the $40,000 prize equally with Thomas Glasmacher, an experimental physicist at Michigan State University. The field in which the Sackler Prize is awarded alternates between physics and chemistry, and within these disciplines it rotates from year to year. The 2006 Sackler Prize honors "young scientists under 40 who have made outstanding and fundamental contributions to the field of theoretical or experimental nuclear/hadron physics." It is the first time the prize was given in nuclear physics. For more information, see
