Marc Abraham is founder of the Ig Nobel Award ceremony and editor of the Journal of Improbable Research. The prizes are intended to celebrate the unusual, honor the imaginative — and spur people's interest in science, medicine, and technology.

Ig Nobel prizes are awarded in a wide range of disciplines for research that makes people LAUGH, then THINK. They have been given out annually since 1991 in a ceremony held at Harvard University, for which Marc always writes an opera and acts as emcee.
