Dr Hazan’s current work encompasses the scientific and financial management of the pre-clinical research in the Department of Bone Marrow Transplantation, Hadassah University Hospital. I work in collaboration with clinicians and researchers from Israel and abroad as well as with biotechnology companies.

Studies in Laboratory have been funded by donations and grants from the Israeli Ministry of Economy (Regulatory mesenchymal stromal cells, “Kamin”), The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (Medical Use of Cannabis), Ministry of Defense (Acute Radiation Syndrome), Israel Cancer Association and the Israel Cord Blood Bank – ICBB.

Our studies utilize both pre-clinical methods and clinical samples.
