MIBS committee: Sigal Ben-Yehuda, Ilan Rosenshine, Orna Amster-Choder/ Microbiology and Molecular Genetics
We aim to establish a discussion group based on microbiologists (but not only!) from the faculty of medicine (HUJI), Pharmacy School, Dental School and physicians from Hadassah, to discuss arising matters in microbiology. We raise issues that need our urgent attention such as; microbial detection, antibiotic resistance, parasite spread, and infectious diseases. The aim of the hub is to direct these discussions towards practical thinking on solving specific existing problems both in medicine and in ongoing research. The hub encourages the presentations of new ideas and concepts.
The overall concept is to establish an active hub, aiming to facilitate new modes of thinking and discussion. It is not planned to be a seminar driven hub with ordinary presentations; rather, it will be based on stimulating discussions which all participants take an active part.
