[Perspectives] Rafael Beyar: a meeting of medicine, science, and technology
Rafael Beyar is a medic who embodies the entrepreneurial spirit of Israel. As an author in the Lancet Israel Series, Beyar writes about Israel’s start-up culture. His outlook is shaped by his vision of “the whole circle of building the concept of medicine, engineering, science, and humanity, intertwined around the patient”, he says. “For the past 11 years I have been director of Rambam Health Care Campus. My goal from the beginning was to take the great clinical infrastructure that we have at the hospital, and the great science, and the great engineering abilities at the Technion, and to combine them in a unique institution that brings together medicine, engineering, and science, through education,” Beyar explains.
