Peter Hudson, Australian football icon, visited Hadassah Hospital Ein-Kerem in July and spent some time with Dr. Yigal Shoshan, head of Neurosurgery at Hadassah.

Mr. Hudson and his wife, Stephanie, were guests of Prof. Andrew Kaye, head of the Department of Neurosurgery at the Royal Melbourne Hospital in Australia, who regularly spends a few weeks at Hadassah working with his neurosurgery colleagues, as part of a collaboration begun in 2009.

The collaboration, which is pioneering a blood-based test for detecting, monitoring, and treating brain cancer, is an outgrowth of AUSiMED, the bilateral research venture initiated by Hadassah Australia. (See the September 2009 issue of the Hadassah International ebulletin for more information about the beginnings of this joint venture.)
