Martin Rocek’s many contributions to theoretical physics have been recognized by the 2017 Neuron Award, an honor presented to seven scientists of Czech background working in natural or social sciences.

The Neuron Awards are funded and administered by a private foundation in the Czech Republic, to individuals "who are role models and inspiration for younger generations of scientists”. Martin’s colleagues and students will fully agree with this characterization, for his role as instructor, mentor, tutor and advisor over so many years, in addition to his pioneering research advances.

Martin traveled to Prague to receive his award, which cites particularly his contributions in supersymmetry, and to be interviewed on national television.

Congratulations, Martin!
