Technion President Prof. Peretz Lavie said in the festive ceremony held at the Technion's historic building at Hadar HaCarmel (today the Madatech Museum, the Israel National Museum of Science) that "nowadays we would have thought of the founders of the Technion as brave entrepreneurs who established a start-up company" and that it is unlikely that when they laid its cornerstone one hundred years ago, they imagined that the day will come when it would become a leading science and technology university worldwide.

The recipients of the honorary doctorates are: Prof. Srulik Cederbaum, Prof. Francois Diederich, Gary Goldberg, Itzhak Nissan, Dr. Eli Opper, Joan Seidel, Prof. Gunter Spur and Moshe Yanai.

Their discovery of ubiquitin-mediated protein degradation made them Technion's first Nobel laureates in Chemistry. In this film, originally made for the campus visitor's center, Profs. Hershko and Ciechanover explain in layman's terms just what it's all about – suitable for students too.

This year, Wired included Ms. Estrin on a list of "50 People Who Will Change the World" and CNN called her of the "10 Most Powerful Women in Tech."

For an institution concerned with spinning out an army of startups based on the latest technological developments, it’s hard to think of a more fitting hire.
