Michigan-Israel Partnership for Research and Education

A strategic scientific alliance

The Weizmann Institute in Rehovot, Israel, is a collaborator with the LSI. Weizmann is one of the world’s leading multidisciplinary research centers, with around 2,500 scientists, postdoctoral fellows, Ph.D. and M.Sc. students and staff.

The State of Israel is home to some of the world’s most advanced scientific and technical research, and the alliance between University of Michigan and scientists in Israel accelerates the discovery and development of new medications and treatments.  

The Michigan-Israel Partnership for Research and Education with the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and the Weizmann Institute of Science expands on that potential and connects great minds across political borders. Working at the edges of the disciplines and without the limitations of national or academic boundaries, scientists are empowered to pursue the most promising approaches to confront some of humanity’s most serious health concerns. 

The  Michigan-Israel Partnership funds collaborative research projects, student and faculty  exchange, institutional joint ventures and technology commercialization.
