A delegation of 60 British top Ben Gurion Universityacademics will visit Israel this week to launch a groundbreaking program to promote collaboration between the two countries in regenerative medicine.

Over 250 people will participate in the first UK-Israel Regenerative Medicine Conference at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev on November 22-23, with millions of people who have suffered major trauma, heart disease and Parkinson’s disease standing to benefit from this first-ever gathering of specialists.
