Dan Prober is the 2019 YSEA award recipient for Advancement of Basic and Applied Science. The Yale Science and Engineering Assocation, Inc. (YSEA) has recently announced.
The YSEA AWARD FOR ADVANCEMENT OF BASIC AND APPLIED SCIENCE is conferred upon an individual who has received an undergraduate or graduate degree from Yale University or is a member of the Yale Faculty. While it has generally been awarded for a record of professional excellence in a particular field of science or engineering, the choice of the recipient is not explicitly limited. The candidate may have made an outstanding contribution to the advancement of a scientific discipline in general, not necessarily through frontier research. Several previous award winners have gone on to become Nobel Laureates or to achieve other major international awards.
