Bay Area mission

Date: Sunday, March 29, 2015

The American Committee’s Bay Area Region hosted a mission to the Weizmann Institute in November, coinciding with the 66th Annual General Meeting of the International Board. Mission Co-Chairs Dr. Gladys Monroy and Larry Marks led an intimate group of 20 friends on a seven-day tour of Israel and the Weizmann Institute of Science.


On campus, the group met with scientists involved in the Integrated Cancer Center, met with Prof. Brian Berkowitz of the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, and attended the dedication of the Nancy and Stephen Grand Israel National Center for Personalized Medicine, followed immediately by a private tour of the Grand INCPM led by its director, Dr. Berta Strulovici.
