Weizmann-University of Michigan- Technion conference

Date: Sunday, March 29, 2015

A delegation of more than 50 scientists from the University of Michigan and the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology and the Weizmann Institute gathered on campus for a three-day conference on biomedical and bioengineering research in late January. “The Weizmann Institute has world-class scientists who have made paradigm- changing discoveries,” said Dr. David Pinksy, Chief of Cardiovascular Medicine at the University of Michigan Medical School, who has helped spearhead the tripartite collaboration. To date, 21 joint grants have been awarded to collaborations between scientists at the three institutions. Two of this year’s grants are being given to Prof. Orly Reiner of the Department of Molecular Genetics and Prof. Steffen Jung of the Department of Immunology.
