ABOUT US
It all Starts with a Question…
The Weizmann Institute of Science's more than 80 years of impact starts with a simple question and plenty of imagination and drive. But it takes even more to power our researchers and their laboratories to life-changing success. Individuals, corporations and foundations around the world invest generously in the Weizmann Institute’s research, graduate education and scientific outreach programs, including many Canadians who share our belief in the power of research. Continuing to give scientists the time, space and resources to imagine and discover is the priority of Weizmann Canada.
