Ciechanover joins Aurora advisory board
Dr. Aaron Ciechanover, the 2004 Nobel laureate in chemistry, has joined the technology advisory board of dedicated breast MRI technology developer Aurora Imaging Technology of North Andover, Mass.

Ciechanover is a research professor of biochemistry in the Rappaport Faculty of Medicine and Research Institute of the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel.

His research converted intracellular proteolysis into a major research area in modern biology and biomedicine. Ciechanover’s studies led to the understanding of the mechanisms of protein ubiquitination and degradation that initiated the development of a new generation of highly specific mechanism-based drugs, according to Aurora.
