Last month, Norman Seiden, along with his son and daughter-in-law, Mark and Diane, all of Tenafly, were honored at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology for the family’s three generations of support to the university. Joined by Norman Seiden’s son, Stephen, and his wife, Sharon, of Livingston, they participated in festivities that included the dedications of the Mark and Diane Seiden International Workshop in Nanosciences and the Pearl Seiden International Meeting in Life Sciences, and award ceremonies for the Norman and Barbara Seiden prizes and the Norman Seiden prize for Academic Excellence.

Technion professor Roy Kishony, a co-organizer of the Seiden Workshop, thanked the family for its foresight in “helping to proactively bring top researchers to the Technion,” which, he said, “strengthens relationships between the global academic community and Israel.”
