"Nancy and I recognize that Israel is a world leader in science and technology.  This gift enables Weizmann to equip itself to participate in the exploding world of genetics and to find cures for diseases to improve the human condition. We all know that the brilliance of Weizmann's scientists will result in major progress from which we will all benefit. In addition, all Israeli scientists who wish to work in this new field will have facilities and teams of other scientists in Israel with whom to collaborate without needing to travel to other countries to do this important work.  We are thrilled to assist in this powerful effort," Stephen Grand said.

Ellen Merlo, Chair of the American Committee, and Marshall S. Levin, Executive Vice President and CEO, who announced the gift today, said, "Nancy and Stephen are exemplary humanitarians and true leaders. With this transformational gift, the Grands have given optimism and hope to millions of people around the world. We cannot think of a more powerful and meaningful commitment to our mission of Science for the Benefit of Humanity."

Prof. Daniel Zajfman, President of the Weizmann Institute, said that the Grands' extraordinary gift will profoundly influence the future of biomedical research. "Stephen and Nancy Grand are full and valued partners in our audacious vision for the future," he said. "The Nancy and Stephen Grand Israel National Center for Personalized Medicine serves not only our own scientists, but researchers from all over the country. In other words, all the citizens of Israel, as well as all people around the globe, have reason to be grateful to the Grands for their wonderful generosity."
