In October, nine Weizmann Institute scientists, leaders in cancer research, traveled to Australia to participate in Weizmann Australia’s second Making Connections symposium. The symposium, entitled “Future Directions in Cancer Biology and Targeted Therapeutics”, was held in Melbourne and was attended by over 100 Australian scientists, postdocs, and graduate students. Strong scientific connections were made and those that already existed were enhanced.

 

Two evening events took place, a dinner in Melbourne hosted by Mr. Philip Zajac of the Erdi Group, and a cocktail event at the Museum of Sydney. Attendees heard from Profs. Moshe Oren, Michal Neeman, Avigdor Scherz, and Varda Rotter.
