The Clinical Research Institute at Rambam (CRIR)

The Clinical Research Institute at Rambam (CRIR) fosters collaboration to bring research to life by joining the biomedical and life science industries with medical discovery.​​​​​​​​​

Established in 2008 under the leadership of Professor Michael Aviram, the CRIR is a natural progression of Rambam's ongoing efforts to integrate bedside teaching and research to benefit the public at large.

Headed by Professor Yehuda Chowers since 2016, the CRIR is establishing laboratories to focus on advanced clinical research in targeted fields of high medical relevance. These labs contribute to the development of Northern Israel and the Galilee by attracting bright young scientists and clinical practitioners, and gener​ating new national and international collaborations. The resulting innovative research discoveries will facilitate life-changing therapies and treatments and seal Rambam’s commitment to bring health and healing to all.
