The Faculty of Medicine: Mobilized to Fight the Coronavirus

The Hebrew University’s Faculty of Medicine is applying its full scientific and medical expertise and resources to combatting SARS-CoV-2, known as COVID-19. Many of the top Israeli scientists in the fields of virology, microbiology, immunology, cellular biology, and epidemiology are members of our Faculty and have joined forces to win this battle.

Doctors and scientists at the Faculty are working intensively on broad aspects of the viral epidemic, with the aim of enhancing and scaling up virus detection efforts, developing new tools to identify the virus and its carriers as well as new protocols for patient treatment, the prevention of infection, and the development of new vaccine(s).
