KBT Inauguration at TAU
A new collaboration initiative was forged between the Center for Computational Biology at UC Berkeley (CCB) and the Edmond J. Safra Center for Bioinformatics at Tel Aviv University (TAU). The initiative is supported by a $5 million grant from the Koret Foundation.
On May 2 2018, the initiative was inaugurated in a ceremony at TAU. Prof. Josef Klafter, TAU president, Dr. Anita Friedman, president of the Koret Foundation, and Prof. Ron Shamir greeted the audience. Prof. Klafter awarded a certificate to Dr. Friedman.
Maoz Gelbart, Edmond J. Safra PhD fellow (Life Sciences), gave a short talk titled "Evolution of HIV" describing his research, conducted in collaboration with the Center for Computational Biology researchers at UC Berkeley.
A capacity audience of researchers and students in bioinformatics filled the Jaglom Auditorium. The representatives of the Edmond J. Safra Philanthropic Foundation in Israel, Mr. Juir Torenheim and Mr. Ariel Greenberg, were guests of honor.
