Collaborative Cancer Bioinformatics and AI research grants
The Edmond J. Safra Center for Bioinformatics aims to promote excellence in clinical bioinformatics research by bringing together bioinformatics scientists and clinicians. The Center, partnering with the Cancer Biology Research Center (CBRC), Djerassi Oncology Center, and Tel Aviv University Center for AI and Data Science (TAD), will provide several one-year research grants in the field of cancer bioinformatics and AI, to support collaborative efforts between clinicians and basic research scientists.
A total of 900,000 NIS will be awarded, with up to 200,000 NIS per grant. The research grants will support integration of big data analysis, bioinformatics tools and artificial intelligence with translational research on the causes, mechanisms, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cancer.
Please note Teva involvement as indicated in the call: A fraction of the total budget is provided by Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. Applicants can provide consent for Teva experts to read their proposal, and to be considered for sponsorship and mentorship by Teva during the project. Teva will not be involved in determining the winning applications and their budget.
