## Scientific Awards won by our Participants

## 2021

## Gordon Baym

*University of Illinois Urbana Champaign*

**2021 APS Medal for Exceptional Achievement in Research**

*Recognizes contributions of the highest level that advance our knowledge and understanding of the physical universe and in all its facets. It is intended to celebrate scientific inquiry and the pursuit of knowledge.*

Chosen for major discoveries in theoretical condensed matter and many-body physics, neutron star structure and composition, quark matter and quark-gluon plasma physics, and in atomic physics and ultracold quantum gases.

## 2020

## Andrea Ghez

*UCLA*

**Nobel Prize in Physics**

Chosen for the discovery of a supermassive compact object at the centre of our galaxy.

## Roger Penrose

*University of Oxford*

**Nobel Prize in Physics**

Chosen for the discovery of a supermassive compact object at the centre of our galaxy.

## Pierre Ramond

*University of Florida*

**Dirac Medal of the ICTP**

*Recognizes scientists who have made significant contributions to theoretical physics.*

Chosen with Miguel Virasoro for their pioneering contributions to the inception and formulation of string theory which introduced new Bosonic and Fermionic symmetries into physics.

## Miguel Virasoro
