Scientists and innovators at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem are leaders in applied, practical research that sustains Israel and the world.

Among the new initiatives at The Hebrew University:

• Dr. Yaakov Nahmias, Director of The Hebrew University's Center for
Bioengineering, partnered with Professor Chaim Lotan, Director of
Hadassah Medical Center's Heart Institute and Dan Galai, former
Dean of the Business School, to establish The Hebrew University's
Biodesign: Medical Innovation Program. The initiative is the first
academic medical innovation accelerator in Israel, and has spurred
four start-ups in its first year.

• One of the projects in the Biodesign: Medical Innovation Program,
SAGIV, is a semi-automatic handheld device for rapid and safe IV
insertion. SAGIV targets a $90o million market with elements already
tested on difficult IV insertion cases at the Hadassah Medical Center.

• The impression procedure for dentures is over ioo years old. Using an
optical system, Biodesign students have developed 3D tomography
prototypes to reconstruct dentures, distinguishing between soft and
hard tissue. This enables denture wearers to avoid painful ulcers.
