A special thank-you at the House of Commons
Sheridan Gould of Weizmann UK, Chris Philip MP, Martin Paisner (Chair of Weizmann UK), and Prof. Daniel Zajfman
Weizmann UK was joined by close to 100 friends for a special reception at the House of Commons on 1 December to celebrate the success of the Global Gathering, which took place in London in June.
It was also an opportunity to thank our dedicated donors for all their generosity in funding the Weizmann UK Building for Biocomplexity Research, which has been the committee’s major fundraising focus for the past two years.
Weizmann Institute President Prof. Daniel Zajfman gave an overview of the important research that will take place in the newly transformed building.
The event was graciously hosted by Chris Philp MP, an alumnus of the Dr. Bessie Lawrence International Summer Science Institute. An advocate of British-Israeli collaboration, he spoke with great warmth about his happy memories of his time at the Weizmann Institute and praised the Institute on its achievements throughout its relatively short history.
