April 16, 2021

In this episode of HUJI Bites, we speak with Dr. Sharoni Shafir, head of the recently established Institute of Environmental Sciences at The Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment at The Hebrew University. The Institute works to promote research and teaching in environmental sciences in agriculture – combining the diverse research approaches of the over 40 research laboratories that comprise the Institute.

Shafir speaks with us about the incredible advancements Israel has made in agriculture – specifically in the study of bee biology at the B. Triwaks Bee Research Center – as well as honoring the memory of the Center’s namesake who fell in battle in Tantura on May 23, 1948.
