Tel Hai News and Updates
The Third Galilee Biomedical Conference
The upcoming biomedical conference promises to create a significant encounter between researchers and clinicians, while furthering cooperation between leading scientific institutions in northern Israel: Tel-Hai College and its partner MIGAL Galilee Technology Center (who host the conference), the new Bar-Ilan University Faculty of Medicine in Tzfat, and the veteran medical school at Haifa's Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. The conference will provide a springboard for new biotechnological research and development in Israel's northern periphery.
Hebrew and English lectures and presentations will encompass a variety of themes, such as stem-cell research applications, Hepatitis C vaccine development, new treatments for cancer, and more. Final sessions will be devoted to seven parallel presentations on current research in different branches of medicine (including cardiology, pediatrics, women's health, and more), and a presentation by the Galilee Research Authority on upcoming calls for proposals and prospects for support.
Participants will have time to continue conversations and forging of contacts in a festive setting during the informal closing event at the Rimon Winery.
