A professor at the Weizmann Institute of Science (WIS) and director of the Kimmelman Center for Biomolecular Structure, Dr. Yonath focuses her studies on deciphering the detailed functions of ribosomes, the cellular factories for the translation of the genetic code to proteins. Additionally, she is currently investigating how antibiotics paralyze bacterial ribosomes and how resistance is acquired by pathogenic bacteria. These studies may well provide insights leading to the development new classes of antibiotic drugs. Dr. Yonath graduated from Hebrew University, earned a Ph.D. at WIS and did postdoctoral work at Carnegie-Mellon University and MIT. She is a member of the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities, the European Academy of Sciences and Art, the Korean Academy of Sciences and Technology, and the US National Academy of Sciences, among others.

The Dakin Memorial Lecture was instituted in 1953 after the College received the scientific library, laboratory, equipment and memorabilia of Dr. Henry Drysdale Dakin. Further gifts from his surviving relatives made possible the Dakin room, which now houses the entire collection. Dakin, gained international fame for developing the life-saving, buffered hypochlorite solution which bears his name. It was first used in World War I for the irrigation of infected wounds.
