Falling for TAU in Miami
Supporters and friends from the US, Canada, France and Israel gathered in Miami for the mini-conference Fall 4 TAU, where they celebrated the University's international and national achievements.
Participants heard from TAU Professors Dan Peer and Vered Padler-Karavani of the Shmunis School of Biomedicine and Cancer Research as well as Dr. Omri Bronstein of the School of Zoology, on their ground-breaking research. On the second night, participants joined keynote speaker, Major General Amikam Norkin, former Commander of the Israeli Air Force, at a dinner where he highlighted the University's contributions to the IDF.
They were also treated to talks by leading TAU alumni including neuroscientist and Northwestern business professor Dr. Moran Cerf, UN Counter Terrorism Executive Directorate Chief of Branch Dr. David Scharia, and Tehran co-producer Alon Aranya who confirmed a season 3 of the popular show. A select group took a boat ride around the harbor with Dr. Bronstein, a marine biologist.
University President Prof. Ariel Porat commented, "We are proud that Tel Aviv University is keeping Israel at the forefront of global science, technology and education, and delighted that you have chosen to discover more about Tel Aviv University from some of our eminent researchers and alumni."
Meeting in person for the first time in over two years, old friends and new got to speak directly with researchers and experience just what makes the TAU community so special. Check out photos from the event here.
