The eleveth president of the Weizmann Institute of Science, Professor Alon Chen, took office on 1 December 2019. He is joined by four new vice presidents, all of whom assumed their new mantles today.
“The Weizmann Institute is a world-leading research institution that generates transformative knowledge and educates the scientists of tomorrow,” said Professor Chen in his recent speech before the Annual International Board.
“Our alumni embark on careers in high-tech and biotech, and in academia, providing the foundations of Israel’s booming economy, just as Chaim Weizmann envisioned. As we reach the milestone of seventy years since the establishment of the Weizmann Institute, I believe it’s safe to say that we have indeed lived up to Chaim Weizmann’s expectations. Perhaps we have even exceeded them,” he said.
