Some 40 participants gathered in a festive event hosted at the request of Lennart Schuss, Chairman of the Swedish Society of Friends of the Weizmann Institute, and Beatrice Bondy, Co-Chair. Israeli Ambassador, Ilan Ben-Dov, hosted the event.
The guests enjoyed two fascinating lectures by two well-known female scientists in the field of malaria research, Dr. Neta Regev-Rudzki from the Department of Biomolecular Sciences at the Weizmann Institute of Science and her long-time research colleague Dr. Noushin Emami from the Department of Molecular Biosciences at the University of Stockholm.
Among the participants were professor Ole Petter Ottersen, Dean of Karolinska Institute in Stockholm; Professor Akira Kaneko, Karolinska Institute; Professor Rolf Lewensohn, Karolinska Institute; Dr. Ilija Batljan, CEO of SBB; and Professor Peter Brzezinski, University of Stockholm. A toast was raised for the continuation of further collaborations between Israel to Sweden.
