New England-Israel Business Council: State Street Jewish Professionals Network

It is very challenging for small Israeli Med-tech companies to join forces with large US medical centers. Two Israeli Med-Tech companies, with the help of BIRD (Binational Industrial Research and Development) Foundation funding, are collaborating with two major medical centers in Massachusetts. Join us and learn about the companies’ technologies, how they secured the funding and how they managed to collaborate with such esteemed institutions.

Israeli Med-Tech Companies Collaborate with Major Medical-Centers:

  • Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
  • UMass Medical Center

The two projects funded by BIRD:

Project 1: AEYE Health (Tel Aviv, Israel) and University of Massachusetts Medical Center (Worcester, MA) to develop a diagnostic screening system for retinal imaging.

Project 2: XRHealth (Tel Aviv, Israel) and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (Boston, MA) to develop a perioperative VR platform designed to distract patients from pain while undergoing medical procedures.

During the event you will have the opportunity to Q&A. The event is free and open to the public, you are welcome to invite a friend.
