Layer-5 copyPresented by Professor Ben-Zion Shilo, Ph.D, the Hilda and Cecil Professorial Chair of Molecular Genetics, Weizmann Institute of Science

Professor Shilo’s seminal work with developing embryos is not only scientifically significant, it is also beautiful! His groundbreaking work investigating how signaling enzymes inside cells operate during development, and what goes wrong when their communication system breaks down, provides hope for cancer prevention. In addition, his amazing photographs of cell division highlight the beauty of biology.

Fee: Free! A kosher lunch will be served courtesy of the ACWIS! Register by March 13.
