A Window to the Campus #5: Women Scientists of Weizmann


The number of women in science is still too low, which is why the Institute has multiple programs to turn the situation around. Meet three of Weizmann’s remarkable female scientists, including Prof. Adi Kimchi, who – in addition to conducting her Israel Prize-winning molecular genetics research – has developed several initiatives for women, such as how to balance family and career.

We also meet Prof. Nirit Dudovich, the first woman to head a lab in the Faculty of Physics, and rechargeable-battery expert Dr. Michal Leskes, who was supported by the National Postdoctoral Award Program for Advancing Women in Science.
