The Israeli Translational Research Network

CRIR  Selected Lectures

The Israeli Translational Research Network Webinars

A groundbreaking consortium of multidisciplinary collaborations between researchers and healthcare providers to promote Bench-to-Bedside Research. As part of its scientific activity, the Clinical Research Institute at Rambam (CRIR) established in 2018 the Annual Meeting of the Israeli Translational Research (ITR).
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Annual Conference of The Israeli Translational Research cannot 'take place as planned. In the interest of the ITR community, it was decided to initiate a series of bi-monthly Webinar sessions with peer speakers, in order to maintain contact and update each other with the latest medical and scientific developments.
We are highly committed to our mission to further strengthen the multidisciplinary translational research community in Israel, by encouraging research collaborations that may yield major insights forming the basis for breakthrough discoveries leading to lifesaving therapies.
We are happy to announce that the Israeli Translational Research (ITR) network, founded by the Clinical Research Institute at Rambam (CRIR), is now organized in collaboration with the Israel Innovation Authority. We deeply appreciate and are most grateful for this important recognition, and are looking forward to a fruitful and successful activity.
We are happy to invite you to the opening lecture of the new year of Translational Research webinars, scheduled for Sunday October 17th , 2021 at 2:00 PM (Israel time).
