Fellowship for Young Physicians Aims to Secure Hadassah’s Future as Major Research Institution
Launched in 2011, Hadassah Medical Organization's Marom Medical Fellowship program for young physicians aims to position those with research aspirations to get the training they need to pursue a clinical research career and thereby ensure the strong future for research at Hadassah.
Supported by an endowment fund, Marom (which is the Hebrew term for "sky high") will create a cohort of young physician/researchers and provide protected time for them to do research during their residency or when they return from a fellowship abroad. The first fellows come from the departments of pediatrics, nephrology, cardiothoracic surgery, gynecology, and microbiology.
Hadasit, Hadassah’s Technology Transfer Arm, Reviews
When the Hadassah University Medical Center’s physicians suggest a
solution to a medical problem which can lead to the development of a new
medicine or product, Hadasit, Hadassah’s technology transfer arm, explores its
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,
Hadasit still signed 125 agreements for clinical trials, all to be done at
Hadassah. In addition, Hadasit signed 15 agreements for cooperation and
commercialization of technologies that were developed at Hadassah. Click here
