72nd Annual Meeting of the International Board: Building the Future of Neuroscience



Prof. Alon Chen – who is not only the Weizmann Institute president, but a renowned neurobiologist – moderates Building the Future of Neuroscience. Neuroscience is a major area of focus for the Institute and the subject of a new flagship initiative. As one scientist says, Weizmann is “doing some of the most exciting research on the planet.”

Dr. Meital Oren and Prof. Oren Yizhar discuss their trailblazing neuroscience work, as do scientists from departments outside of neurobiology; as Prof. Chen explains, the brain is so complex that other fields of research are necessary to understand its mysteries.
