The Unruly Mind: An Invitation to Israeli Science
25 guests joined AFHU at Congregation Ner Tamid in the Dallas Metroplex on Feb. 23rd to hear Hebrew University (HU) Prof. Gad Yair discuss his research on culture and the role it plays in driving Israeli innovation, Israel’s rapid pace of invention, and the Start-Up Nation’s success. The program was hosted by HU alumnus Dr. Michael Bergel. Dr. Bergel introduced the program, shared his experience at HU (where he obtained all three of his degrees – B.S., M.S., and Ph.D.) – and mentioned how Prof. Yair’s work resonated with his own experience as a cancer biologist and leader of a research lab.
