Hadasit Sets Up Incubator Company to Develop Stent Locator
To develop a unique stent locator based on the work of three Hadassah Medical Center heart specialists, Hadasit, Hadassah's Technology Transfer Company, has created an incubator company entitled AOL Medical.
Stemming from the research of Prof. Chaim Lotan, Director of Hadassah's Heart Institute, Dr. Haim Danenberg, Director of Interventional Cardiology, and Invasive Cardiologist Dr. Boris Varshitzky, this unique locator is designed to assist cardiologists in positioning the stent in the heart's vascular branches.
The evolution of AOL Medical is an example of Hadasit being there to give Hadassah's physician/researchers an added edge in bringing their ideas to fruition and ensuring that these ideas arrive at the marketplace, where they can have a worldwide impact.

feasibility and supports the promotion of those viable ideas with innovation
potential. Although 2012 has been “a year full of challenges for the life
science industry,” says Einat Zisman, Hadasit’s Chief Executive Officer,

Hadassah. In addition, Hadasit signed 15 agreements for cooperation and
commercialization of technologies that were developed at Hadassah. Click here
