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

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,
