New Weizmann buildingsFacts and Figures

The Institute is managed by an International Board headed by an elected Chair, and by an Executive Board, also headed by an elected Chair. The Executive Board elects the President of the Weizmann Institute, who appoints the Vice President, and the Vice Presidents for Resource Development, for Technology Transfer, and for Administration and Finance. They work alongside the Deans, the Scientific Council (which includes all the Institute’s scientists) and the Council of Professors (which includes all the full Professors of the Institute).

Research center building5 faculties, 17 departments, 1 graduate school, 50 interdisciplinary centers

The Institute has five faculties – Mathematics and Computer Science, Physics, Chemistry, Biochemistry and Biology – and the faculties in turn are divided into 17 scientific departments. In addition, the Feinberg Graduate School, the Institute’s university arm, trains research students pursuing graduate degrees.

The Weizmann Institute serves as a meeting place for scientists from different disciplines, setting the stage for multidisciplinary collaborations and the emergence of new research fields. To encourage this creative activity, the Institute has created some 50 multidisciplinary research institutes and centers, most of which provide an intellectual rather than physical framework for joint projects. These institutes and centers stimulate activity in a multiplicity of fields, including brain research, cancer research, nanotechnology, renewable energy sources, experimental physics, biological physics, environmental studies, the study of autoimmune diseases, plant sciences, photosynthesis, genetics and others.

The Human Factor

In its early days, the Daniel Sieff Research Institute had a scientific staff of no more than a dozen, working under the guidance of Dr. Weizmann. Today the campus community numbers more than 2, 600: some 1, 000 scientists and scientific staff, 1, 000 research students, 220 postdoctoral fellows and 400 administrative employees.
