Nobel Prize Winning’ Institute Lectures with Hassans

February 2010

Hassans was delighted to host the “Business of Science” lecture that was delivered by Professor Daniel Zajfman, President of the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, home of the 2009 Chemistry Nobel Prize.

The lecture was presented to a ‘full house' of delegates, clients and also staff members of the firm. The response from the audience was immense and reflected the quality and inspirational lecture that was delivered, in a way that we may all be able to understand the basics of science and what drives a scientist to continue his research for many years. The core message being, that it is an overwhelming sense of ‘curiosity' that drives scientists to discover things like, electricity and x-rays, rather than being motivated by money or industry.

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2009 awardees' studied one of life's core processes: the ribosome's translation of DNA information into life. Ribosome's produce proteins, which in turn control the chemistry in all living organisms. As ribosome's are crucial to life, they are also a major target for new antibiotics. The 2009 Nobel Prize was awarded after the institutes' scientists showed what the ribosome's look like and how they function at the atomic level.

Senior Partner of Hassans, James Levy QC chaired the event and comments "to be able to introduce Daniel Zajfman to Gibraltar is an honour, given the prestige of such an important institute and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for coming to Gibraltar and delivering such an inspirational talk".
