Hebrew University Wins $5M Grant

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem has been awarded a $5 million grant from the Helmsley Charitable Trust for its Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences.

The funding, announced Thursday, will be delivered over a three-year period to support imaging equipment, administrative support and staffing at the Safra Center, which conducts research related to neurodegenerative diseases and was founded in 2009.

“This generous gift will enable the development of pioneering therapies and innovations that will improve the quality of life for people worldwide,” said Martin Karlinsky, president of American Friends of Hebrew University. He lauded the Helmsley Trust for “advancing Israel’s finest efforts to unlock the mysteries surrounding the structure and function of the brain.”
