has been canceled at the speaker’s request.
A professor at the Weizmann Institute of Science (WIS), Ada Yonath, Ph.D., focuses her studies on deciphering the detailed functions of ribosomes, the cellular factories for the translation of the genetic code to proteins. Dr. Yonath is currently investigating how antibiotics paralyze bacterial ribosomes and how pathogenic bacteria acquire resistance, consequently paving the way for advanced drugs.
