Weizmann Canada Celebrates Milestone Year For Women In Science
Sep 13 2018
Weizmann Canada’s fifth annual Wonderful Women event in support of the Israel National Postdoctoral Award Program for Advancing Women in Science took place on May 23 at Casa Loma in Toronto and featured a special keynote address by actress and activist Mira Sorvino. More than 300 people were in attendance at the event, which featured Dr. Ruth Scherz-Shouval, a former grant recipient who became a principal investigator in the Department of Biomolecular Sciences in 2015.
This year represents an important milestone in the history of Weizmann Canada and its Wonderful Women: 10 years since the inception of the award program, and 30 years since the Women and Science Committee was founded in Toronto by Marvelle Koffler.
