Johns Hopkins University president Prof. Ronald Daniels bucked academia’s BDS movement and paid a visit to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa to strengthen ties with the facility as a medical center similar to his own.

Meeting with Rambam director-general Prof. Rafael Beyar and outstanding researchers and physicians late last week, Daniels said Rambam and the Baltimore, Maryland-based university have been cooperating on joint research and exchange visits for doctors and researchers for a decade, since Beyar was dean of the Technion- Israel Institute of Technology’s Rappaport Medical Faculty. Daniels visited Haifa two years ago to tour the Technion.

“Israeli medical and academic institutions have what to offer on an international scale,” said Beyar. “Right here in Haifa, our researchers and entrepreneurs are working in labs and hi-tech startups on developments that will bring about significant changes” in the way people will live.

Daniels said he was very impressed with Rambam’s clinical, academic and administrative work and the way it serves as an “example of coexistence and multiculturalism, both among the medical staff and patients.”
