The Life Science Colloquium (LSC) is a monthly forum of the Faculties of Life Sciences at the Weizmann Institute, to which we invite distinguished scientists to present an institute-wide lecture on their research, and to spend a few days on campus for meetings and discussion with faculty and students.

Financial support for the LSC is generously provided by Marilyn Perlman and Harry Epstein, Chicago, IL, the Moross Integrated Cancer Center and the Y. Leon Benoziyo Institute for Molecular Medicine.
