More than 200 graduates of the Weizmann Institute participated in an event of the Alumni Association held on the 49th floor of the Azrieli Towers in Tel Aviv.

 

Dr. Yaniv Ziv, from the Department of Neurobiology, lectured on his research on stable memories and dynamic brain networks.

 

Alumna Rinat Shiran-Rasky, VP and General Counsel of International Markets at Teva Pharmaceuticals, introduced Itai Herman, a television star known as “the Chaser”. Herman described how he deals with stressful situations and the audience participated in a real-time trivia game moderated by the Chaser.

 

The event represents another step forward in the expansion of the Alumni Association, which aims to strengthen the connection among the graduates and also between the graduates and the Institute.
