Theoretical physicist Dr. Frank Wilczek wins 2022 Templeton Prize

The Templeton Prize, which is administered by Alliance member the John Templeton Foundation, today announced Nobel Prize-winning theoretical physicist Dr. Frank Wilczek as its 2022 winner. The organization notes that Wilczek’s “boundary-pushing investigations into the fundamental laws of nature have transformed our understanding of the forces that govern our universe.” Valued at more than $1.3 million, the Templeton Prize is one of the world’s largest annual individual awards and recognizes individuals whose achievements advance Sir John Templeton’s philanthropic vision: harnessing the power of the sciences to explore the deepest questions of the universe and humankind’s place and purpose within it.
