The Power and Promise of Stem Cells: New Hope for Health and Medicine

Prof. Jacob Hanna of Weizmann’s Department of Molecular Genetics embodies the creativity, innovation, and outside-the-box thinking that have been hallmarks of the Institute since its inception. In this engaging webinar we hear from Prof. Hanna on the use of his revolutionary methods to study stem cells and how he is making major leaps forward in this field. His groundbreaking work could pave the way to medical applications such as the ability to repair damaged tissue, treat autoimmune diseases, grow transplant organs, cure infertility, and much more.

Following the presentation the American Committee's Senior Vice President for Donor Relations and National Programs, Bonnie Diamond, led a dynamic Q&A session.
