A Polymath Award for Prof. Oded Rechavi

CONGRATULATIONS TO PROF. RECHAVI AND TO TAU: TAU prof. receives rare, unrestricted grant of $2.5 mil. "The Polymaths Award is different. They tell you: 'Here are the resources. Do something completely new, take risks. Investigate wild ideas'" (Tobias Siegal, Jerusalem Post).
In another study, Rechavi and his team assisted in decoding the Dead Sea Scrolls through the DNA of the parchments on which they were written, shedding more light on the history of the late Second Temple period.
For more on that project, see here.
