The Azrieli Institute for Systems Biology provides the ideal platform for promoting ongoing and new research initiatives, fostering collaborations, increasing intellectual exchange, and attracting the brightest young scientists to the Weizmann Institute of Science. As the dominant systems-biology engine on campus, it is enabling investment in systems biology technologies and infrastructure, the introduction of new research directions and tools, support for multi-disciplinary collaborations, and expansion of education and intellectual exchange activities.
For 25 years, the Azrieli Foundation has quietly funded institutions as well as operated programs on the ground in Canada and Israel. The Foundation supports scientific and medical research, higher education, youth empowerment and school perseverance, architecture, Holocaust education, music and the arts and quality of life initiatives for people with developmental disabilities.
