    The Azrieli National Institute for Human Brain Imaging and Research

    The human brain has 100 billion neurons and 1,000 times more synaptic connections than there are stars in our galaxy. It is ""the most complex challenge that science has ever encountered,"" says Prof. Israel Bar-Joseph, who appears in this video along with Dr. Assaf Tal, Dr. Amnon Bar-Shir, Dr. Edna Furman-Haran, Prof. Lucio Frydman, Prof. Rafi Malach, Prof. Noam Sobel, Prof. Yadin Dudai, and Institute president Prof. Daniel Zajfman…

  • A_Trillion_Computers
    A Trillion Computers in a Drop of Water

    Even before we have the quantum computers of tomorrow, we may have their successor: biological computers. Prof. Ehud Shapiro has created one that's so small that a trillion can fit in a single drop of water, and which has diagnosed cancer in a test tube. Someday the computer could circulate through the human body, diagnosing and treating disease.

    Back to Basics, Forward to the Future

    The Weizmann Institute conducts basic science research, but what, exactly, is that? Go with Profs. Uri Alon, Roy Bar-Ziv, Israel Dostrovsky, Shafi Goldwasser, Yair Reisner, Leo Sachs, Idit Shachar, Eran Segal, Ady Stern, and Dan Tawfik on a tour of basic science research: what is, how it has benefitted humankind, and how it will likely shape the future.

  • Crash

    ""Crash"" describes construction of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particle accelerator near Geneva, where Weizmann scientists are part of a global team seeking to find the Higgs boson and prove the Standard Model of physics. When speeding particles collide in the LHC, they very briefly mimic the conditions that existed right after the Big Bang.

  • Five_Tomorrows
    Five Tomorrows: Five Scientists on Five Fields

    In this video, five scientists address five potential tomorrows: Dr. Michal Irani speaks about the next step in the evolution of information; Dr. Henry Markram addresses how nerve cells communicate; Dr. Nir Davidson studies how lasers trap atoms in the dark; Dr. Gad Haase examines whether light can be turned into fuel; and Dr. Michael Fainzilber searches for the snail's secret of regeneration.

  • The_Genomics_Revolution
    The Genomics Revolution: The Importance of Next-Gen Instrumentation

    Prof. Doron Lancet, Head of the Crown Human Genome Center, and Dr. Daniela Amann-Zalcenstein, Head of High-Throughput Sequencing, explain the importance of next-generation high-throughput sequencing technology for genetics research, with thanks for support from Chicago's Crown family and the American Committee's New York Region.

    Weizmann Global Gathering 2014: Partners in Scientific Advancement, Prof. Michal Neeman

    Prof. Michal Neeman spoke at the 2014 Global Gathering session, Partners in Scientific Advancement, about why it's so important for us to get high-resolution images of cancer. Today's instrumentation allows scientists to actually observe cancer in the body, providing invaluable new data. Of course, staying on top of the technology, much less knowing how to maximize its use, is also a challenge.

  • mri-facts
    Weizmann ""Did You Know?"" – Facts About MRI

    This six-minute video explains what MRI is and how it works by using a strong magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of organs and tissue inside our bodies. MRI, and functional MRI in particular, have radically changed neuroscience by allowing unprecedented, real-time, literal insight into the brain.

  • global-gathering-eytan-domany
    Weizmann Global Gathering 2014: Partners in Scientific Advancement, Prof. Eytan Domany

    Speaking at the Partners in Scientific Advancement session, the entertaining Prof. Eytan Domany provides an overview of modern genomic research, which began with the deciphering of the human genome in 2001 – a monumental feat that immediately led to big excitement, big data, and big hope for medicine, and led him to leave physics, his longtime field of research.
