Christian Fuchs was born in Germany without an immune system – a “bubble boy.” Then Weizmann Institute research gave him an immune system – and today he leads a normal life in Dusseldorf. A farmer in Kisumu, Kenya is able to harvest crops and feed his family thanks to an advance by Prof. Jonathan Gressel that saves corn from a devastating parasite called witchweed and increases the yield. Roslyn and Howard Kaman of Canada longed for a child, but treatment after treatment had no success. Then came Weizmann’s discovery that “biopsy-treatment” could lead to reproductive success; today, the Kaman family includes a little girl.

Medicines ​that ease the suffering of multiple sclerosis patients. A way to produce the nutrient beta-carotene from algae. The technology that gives us satellite television. Science therapy programs for children. Weizmann advances help people all over the world – scientists, too. As Dr. Maya Schuldiner says, she always wanted to raise her children in Israel and be a scientist; she thanks Weizmann “for allowing me to live all my dreams together.”

Weizmann science is truly “in service to the world.”
