U.S. and Israeli Cancer Researchers Collaborate at International Conference


Strengthening relationships, forging new ones, and exchanging information were the goals of the second Joint American Israeli Cancer Conference (JAICCC), attended by close to 400 renowned scientists, clinicians, researchers, and other health care professionals from the U.S., Israel, and Canada at the Renaissance Hotel in Jerusalem last month. “This proved to be a great forum. We were able to expose young scientists in Israel to the distinguished investigators from the U.S. and facilitate a number of joint projects,” said conference co-director Joseph D. Rosenblatt, M.D., associate director of clinical and translational research and chief of the Division of Hematology-Oncology at the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center and professor of medicine, University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine.
