Healthcare & Life Sciences

Texas and Israel have a history of close collaboration in the healthcare and life sciences sectors, working together to spur innovation in medicine and medical technologies. In recent years the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center entered into a multi-year relationship with the Rabin Medical Center in Israel, engaging in faculty and student exchange programs, producing joint studies and research, and operating shared training activities. Relationships like these help increase productivity in both States, while also helping patients gain access to world-class treatments and care around the globe.


The Texas-Israel Alliance, through the tremendous support of David Weissman, has contributed in excess of $1 million towards the advancement of medical science in Israel.
