Biomed 2012 Conference Highlights Israel's Excellence
The ILSI-Biomed 2012 Conference was held between Monday and Wednesday of this week in Tel Aviv. Arutz Sheva was there.
The ILSI-Biomed 2012 Conference is the leading international conference covering the fast-growing field of innovation in the biomedical, health care and life sciences industries. At the conference, industry and academia join hands to learn about the latest and future developments, explore opportunities for new business ventures, meet up with old colleagues and make new contacts.
According to ILSI-Biomed Co-Chairperson Dr. Benny Ze’evi, “[The conference] shows the achievements of the Israeli biotech industry. More than 70 companies are presenting here so many investors can see them and maybe work with them or collaborate with them.”
As well, noted Ze’evi, top executives are brought in to take part in the conference to describe the latest development in these fields and speak of future challenges and opportunities.
He added, “Doctors have to be aware of new developments in this area, be it medical devices or medication. On the other hand, those that are developing medical devices have to be sure they are integrated smoothly into the workflow of the physicians.”
“Devices should be developed in such a way that it should be easier for the regular physician, not just the expert, to use them,” noted Dr. Ze’evi.
He also said that Israel “is perceived as one of the top technology centers in the world. Many Israeli technologies were the first to be used in the world in many areas.”
