Nobel Laureates


Alex Keynan

May 6, 2012

Dear Colleagues:

It is with sadness that I write to inform you that Alex Keynan, Professor Emeritus, Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities, passed away on Sunday, May 6. He was an MBL Corporation Member from 1962 to 2012. He was also an alumnus of the Physiology course (1961), faculty for the Microbial Ecology course (1963, 1978, 1981-1984) and was a Whitman Center investigator (1981-1987) and Library desk user (1997, 1998, 2001-2003).

The MBL flag will be lowered in his honor.
