The pivotal role BIU plays in Israel's science-based culture is underscored by the Israeli government's designation of the University as the home to Israel's newest Medical School, based in the northern Galilee, which opened in the fall of 2011. AFBIU provides opportunities to partner with Bar-Ilan in projects that make a difference for Israel, the Jewish people and all of humankind.
