Actor and activist Christopher Reeve, who became a quadriplegic after a horse-riding accident, was a supporter of the Institute’s advanced work with stem cells and of Prof. Michal Schwartz’s research on treating spinal cord injuries. This brief and touching video memorial is a poignant excerpt from a talk he gave during a visit to campus, in which he says: “the Weizmann Institute, for me, has always been a symbol of the best in research.”

He then tells the audience of a Hebrew phrase that has been very important to him ever since his injury – one that means “everything is possible.” Mr. Reeve died in 2004.
