Introducing new Weizmann scientists 2020-2021

July 7, 2021

The Weizmann Institute of Science has produced a new brochure introducing its newest scientists and what they will be focusing on during 2020-2021.

Weizmann’s President, Professor Alon Chen commences the welcome brochure in the introduction saying:

“The engine that makes great science ‘go’ is outstanding scientists: principal investigators (PIs), and all their lab members—staff scientists, postdoctoral fellows, technicians, and students. At the Weizmann Institute of Science, we have approximately 250 PIs who run labs filled with such talent and powered by the most sophisticated lab equipment and services.

“One of the Institute’s great strengths is its ability to attract the best young scientists fresh from their postdoctoral studies at the world’s top institutions.

“Every year we hire a cadre of new PIs for faculty-track positions, and you can read about our latest hires here. I’m sure you’ll be as excited to read about their work as I was when first hearing about their endeavors.

“It is thanks to our supporters around the globe that we are able to recruit and hire the best scientists; as soon as a new scientist arrives, our donors step up to the plate with financial support for their start-up packages. Given the pace and sophistication of science today, those packages can be large—especially given that the Institute promises the researchers all that they need so that they can soar.

“For those of you who have contributed generously to the careers of young scientists at Weizmann throughout the years, thank you. Your generosity is ensuring the future of science at a time when it is needed most.”
