UM/Israel Partnership for Research

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 has already accelerated the development of new medications and treatments.  

The UM/Israel Partnership for Research 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 UM/Israel Partnership funds collaborative research projects, student and faculty  exchange, institutional joint ventures and technology commercialization. The partnership has ties to the Weizmann Institute, the Technion, Tel Aviv University and other leading institutions in Israel.
