“The partnership is a natural extension of Dan Kahn’s vision and an opportunity for three of the world’s great universities to pursue transformative research advancements in health, science and education. We hope to inspire others to support this incredible cause.”
Lawrence A. Wolfe, President of The D. Dan and Betty Kahn Foundation
Researchers at U-M, Technion and Weizmann are working together to address two major challenges related to aging. Recognizing the high potential for impact, researchers propose combining their joint strengths in data science, immunology and infectious diseases to address these challenges.
Researchers at U-M, Technion and Weizmann are working together to combine cutting-edge advances in assistive robotics, robot autonomy, advanced mechanics, computer vision, machine learning and human-machine interfaces to make farming safer, easier and more productive.
Our research grant program is propelling innovation and relationships forward to address these diseases and to advance efforts that may impact all of science and medicine.
In 10 years, our partnership has funded 60 collaborative projects, and the number of applications continues to grow. In our first year, we awarded two grants of $25,000 to teams of scientists that had at least one partner in Israel and one at U-M. In our latest round of funding, we were able to distribute $1 million — grants of $100,000 each to 10 collaborative teams.
