Hungary’s Kurtag, Roska among Wolf Prize recipients

World-renowned composer Gyorgy Kurtag and renowned neurobiologist Botond Roska are among the recipients of the prestigious Wolf Prize this year.

The award going with a 100,000 dollar cash prize is given annually by Israel’s Wolf Foundation since 1978 in the six fields of agriculture, chemistry, mathematics, medicine, physics, and the arts.

The nine awardees were announced with a five-month delay on Wednesday evening because of the Israeli war.

Kurtag has been recognised with the award for his life-time achievement. Roska received the honour shared with Jose-Alain Sahel for achievements in medicine.
