THE STORY:

The Weizmann Institute of Science is uniquely positioned to meet the Revlon LOVE IS ON Challenge. Our scientists conduct intensive research on a wide variety of women’s health issues, including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, infertility, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, and more. Our goal: to help all women, everywhere, live longer, healthier lives.

With regard to women-specific cancers, Weizmann Institute scientists are working toward a hormonal therapy that could lead to ovarian cancer remission. Those dedicated to defeating breast cancer include Prof. Hadassa Degani, developer of an FDA-approved method of diagnosing the disease without the need for invasive, painful biopsies.

As another example, multiple teams are studying heart disease, which kills more women in the U.S. annually than all forms of cancer combined. Weizmann scientists are currently investigating the formation of the vascular system in order to identify key triggers that contribute to the onset of heart disease. In doing so, they are laying the foundation for more effective treatments.

In addition, the Weizmann Institute is a world leader in reproductive health. Institute scientists developed an innovative uterine-biopsy procedure – performed just before a woman undergoes in vitro fertilization (IVF) – that doubles the chances of successful pregnancy. Current research holds the promise of new diagnostic tools and methods to help couples overcome the challenge of infertility.

The Weizmann Institute’s culture of cross-disciplinary collaboration – bringing together biologists and mathematicians, geneticists and physicists – makes it specially qualified to advance women’s health research, always aiming at prevention, early diagnosis, and new therapies for the well-being and LOVE of women everywhere.

The American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science is a community of dedicated people who share a common vision in support of the Weizmann Institute.
