Q&A with Faculty Scholars

As we celebrate the first five years of the Zuckerman STEM Leadership program, we are more than impressed at the program’s accomplishments in such a short time.

With Mortimer Zuckerman’s vision etched into the program, we have pursued enhanced collaboration and communication between the most promising STEM scholars in the US and Israel,  bridging the gap between the scientific, business and philanthropic communities, and bringing them together with dynamic alternatives to traditional resources.

The Zuckerman STEM Leadership Program has demonstrated its greatest achievements though the success of its faculty scholars. Since 2016, the Zuckerman Faculty Scholars Program has contributed to Israel’s ‘Brain Gain” by bringing 30 Israeli scientists back to Israel from the United States, building a total of 30 new laboratories at each of the seven participating Israeli universities.

We hope you will enjoy reading through the remarkable achievements of our Faculty Scholars highlighted here:
