TAU to Lay Cornerstone for New Trauma Building
TAU is proud to announce the beginning of construction of the Miriam and Moshe Shuster Building for the Center for Traumatic Stress and Resilience. The TAU-run national center brings together 100 mental health and medical researchers, working with the IDF and other organizations in Israel and worldwide, to advance the research, treatment, prevention and education of post-traumatic stress disorder and related conditions.
The extended Moss Family generously contributed a wing in the building in memory of TAU Governors, Honorary Doctors and longtime supporters Sam and Agi Moss of Australia.
Designed by architect Erez Shani, the Miriam and Moshe Shuster Building will provide staff with 2,000 square meters of state-of-the-art research and treatment space. Among the building’s facilities will be laboratories, clinical research facilities, a patient clinic and a large auditorium.
“The Center provides a critical treatment opportunity for Israelis who are constantly facing traumatic threats,” says TAU’s Prof. Yair Bar-Haim, the Center’s Director. “The dedicated Shuster building will enable us to enhance our activities and better serve the public.”
