Despite great progress made in recent decades in understanding and treating human disease, there’s still much to discover. The answers may lie in data.
Researchers at the Hebrew University are using computational medicine to develop newer, more advanced disease prediction and intervention. For example, through the power of data, doctors can analyze damaged cell fragments from our blood and diagnose disease, even before symptoms arise.
Applying the tools of “big data” to mine and analyze vast caches of detailed molecular, clinical and environmental data represents a ground-breaking advance in the battle against endemic illnesses and individualized patient care. To bring this new vision to life, the Hebrew University plans to establish a new Center for Computational Medicine, the first of its kind in Israel.
This is just one example of the work you fund when you give to American Friends of the Hebrew University.
