Collaborative Clinical Bioinformatics Research Grants of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Bioinformatics at TAU & Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center

 

The Edmond J. Safra Center for Bioinformatics aims to promote excellence in clinical bioinformatics research by bringing together bioinformatics scientists and clinicians.

This year, together with I-Medata AI Center at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center (TASMC), we published a joint call for grants with the intention to support fundamental and translational collaborative research that combines novel computational techniques and clinical applications. The grants were for the amount of up to 200,000 NIS each.

Each proposal was anonymously reviewed by three or four independent reviewers. Final decisions were made by the grant committee of Prof. Irit Gat-Viks (TAU) and Dr. Orli Kehat (TASMC).
