July 12: Forging New Frontiers with the Weizmann Institute of Science

Located in Rehovot, Israel, the Weizmann Institute of Science is one of the world’s leading multidisciplinary basic research institutions in the natural and exact sciences. Founded in 1934, the Weizmann Institute has a long history of advancing science that has a direct impact on the world we live in. Since 1964, Weizmann Canada has partnered with individuals, families, foundations, and the business community to support these critical advancements for the benefit of all of humanity.

Join Prof. Roee Ozeri, Vice-President of Resource Development, as he takes us through how the Weizmann Institute is always looking to the future, to answer some of the biggest questions in science. Join us to hear about the Canadian impact on campus and to experience the wonders of Weizmann! From a glimpse into a day of life on campus to forging new frontiers as they embark on three new flagship projects, that will dramatically advance three critical areas of research: brain and neural sciences, artificial intelligence, and particle and astrophysics.

Prof. Roee Ozeri was born in Israel and earned degrees from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Weizmann Institute of Science, before conducting his postdoctoral research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado in the group of David Wineland, 2012 Physics Nobel Laureate. Roee’s distinguished career in quantum computing includes many research awards, as well as articles published in prestigious journals such as Nature, Science and Physical Review Letters. He joined the Weizmann Institute faculty in 2007 and he was appointed Vice President of Resource Development in December 2019. Roee is married with three children.
