On March 20, 2012 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a visit to Technion. He met with Technion researchers, Alon Wolf, Havatzelet Bianco-Peled and Moshe Shoham to learn about new start-ups inspired by Technion bio-medical research. He had a look down the Titan transmission electron microscope in the Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute and visited the clean rooms in the Sara and Moshe Zisapel Nanoelectronics Center. Deeply impressed by his visit Netanyahu suggested that people "invest money in the Technion". Technion President Prof. Peretz Lavie presented Netanyahu with a framed Israel Post Souvenir Leaf and special stamp created for Technion's Cornerstone Centennial year.
