The Hadassah Medical Center and Jules Bordet Institute, Belgium’s only hospital dealing exclusively with cancer, have signed an agreement to collaborate on health care, medical education, clinical research, and hospital management.

The two institutions are already engaged in joint research in breast cancer and pediatric oncology. The ceremony marking the agreement took place in the Abbell Synagogue at Hadassah University Hospital-Ein Kerem.

Representing the Jules Bordet Institute, Prof. Maurice Sosnowski, (left) who is head of its anesthesiology department and president of Hadassah International-Belgium, commented: “Joint science and research is proof that the stupidity of hatred contributes nothing to humankind, but cooperation and life-saving medicine will save the world.” Prof. Yaakov Naparstek , Deputy Director General for Research of the Hadassah Medical Center, (right) represented Hadassah at this Ceremony.
