39 The Israel Chemist and Chemical Engineer Issue 8 · November 2021 · Kislev 5782 Report Chair-elect, Prof. Alex Szpilman, and Dr. Tomer Zidki joined the ceremony. Andrii Varenikov (Technion) received his BSc (2012) andMSc in organic chemistry from the Kharkiv National University (2013) with Alexander Roshal. He carries out his PhD research at the Technion with Mark Gandelman, focusing on synthesizing chiral fluorinated organic compounds via nickelcatalyzed cross-coupling reactions. He developed a novel approach to preparing pharmaceutically important chiral ethers, thioethers, alcohols, fluorinated benzhydryls and utilized organotitanium reagents in these transformations. His mentor, Prof. Mark Gandelman, joined the ceremony. The 2020 ICS - Uri Golik Prize for Excellent Graduate Student Yair Segev of the Department of Chemical and Biological Physics, the Weizmann Institute of Science, received the award. Dr. Uri Golik and Moshe Cohen joined Keinan in awarding the prize. In his absence, Yair’s father, Prof. Moti Segev of the Technion, received the award on his behalf. The 2019 Tenne Family Prize inMemory of Lea Tenne for Nanoscale Sciences Prof. Adi Salomon of Bar-Ilan University received the award for her pioneering work on nanoporous metallic networks and the interaction of light with hybrid nanoscale metal-molecule systems. Prof. Reshef Tenne of the Weizmann Institute joined Keinan in awarding the prize. The original plan was to hold this award ceremony during the NANO.IL conference in Jerusalem, in October 2020. Following the cancellation of that meeting, Prof. Salomon received the 2019 Tenne Prize in 2021. The 2020 Tenne Family Prize inMemory of Lea Tenne for Nanoscale Sciences Prof. Fernando Patolsky of Tel Aviv University received the award for pioneering the synthesis and assembly of semiconductor nanostructures and applying them to ultrasensitive nanoscale chemical and biochemical sensors. Prof. Reshef Tenne of the Weizmann Institute joined Keinan in awarding the prize. The 2020 ICS - Adama Prize for Technological Innovation Prof. Irit Sagi of the Weizmann Institute of Science received the prize for her pioneering research on enzymatic processes using chemical and biophysical approaches and developing inhibitory proteins and antibodies to combat acute and chronic diseases. Dr. Itsik Bar-Nahum of Adama Ltd. joined Keinan in awarding the prize. The 2020 ICS - Amir Shahar Prize for Excellence in Administrative Management Ms. Tsipi Maharabani, Director of Administration, Graduate, and International Affairs at the Department of Chemistry at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, received the prize for professional and creative management over more than three decades, work ethics, and remarkable human relations with faculty members, administrative staff, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows.
