Shaare Zedek’s Expanding Role in the Local Bioscience and Digital Healthcare Fields
In recognition of Shaare Zedek’s expanding role in the local bioscience and digital healthcare fields, the hospital’s Director General Prof. Ofer Merin was invited to open today’s MIXiii conference on Medicine and Technology held at Jerusalem’s International Conference Center – Binyanei Hauma.
The conference, hosted by the Jerusalem Development Authority and the Israel Advanced Technologies Industries, was attended by over 1,000 professionals from the worlds of healthcare and technology from Israel and around the globe.
“The very existence of this event is a perfect example of how we are succeeding in bringing together clinical medicine for the advancement of technology in ways that better our world. Just a few months ago, we wouldn’t have been able to have several hundred people sitting together in a room, because of Corona. But by combining the best of medicine and research with advanced technology, within a relatively short amount of time we were able to develop an effective vaccine and conquer the virus,” Prof. Merin said.
In recent years, Shaare Zedek has become known as a local and international resource for groundbreaking scientific research and innovation through “Shaare Zedek Scientific- Madait”, the hospital’s dedicated company working to advance collaborations between our medical staff and leading names in industry and academia. The company has already succeeded in advancing several projects that will be positioned to make major impacts on medical practice in Israel and around the world.
Dr. Renana Ofan, CEO of Shaare Zedek Scientific noted, “Our hospital has become a growing center of innovation and research, and this event gives us the opportunity to welcome potential partners to work with us in creating a future that best embraces the power of this collaboration between medicine and technology.”
