Dr. Amiram Ariel made the most of a recent short visit to Boston. He was attending the “World Congress on Inflammation” in Boston and extended his trip one day in order to connect with several unique audiences and share information about his scientific research and the University of Haifa.
Dr. Ariel is Chair of the Department of Human Biology at the University and Head of The Laboratory for Molecular Pathways in the Resolution of Inflammation. Click here for an overview of his research activities.
First, Dr. Ariel visited colleagues and labs at the Forsyth Institute in Cambridge, MA, the world’s largest independent research center on oral health. Then he had a private lunch at the Belmont Country Club with University of Haifa supporter JoAnn Bendetson, followed by a meeting with two native Haifa post-doctoral students, Dr. Max Topaz and Dr. Mor Grinstein, both currently doing research at Harvard University.
Dr. Ariel capped his busy day in the evening when he delivered a lecture “Healing Ourselves: Harnessing the Innate Healing Modules of the Immune System to Treat Inflammatory Disorders and Metastic Cancer” to over 60 attendees at Temple Emunah in Lexington, MA.
