[Viewpoint] Israel: a start-up life science nation

Advances in biomedicine are the product of a combination of research, technological progress, and innovation. The environment needed to promote such progress includes strong academic education and research, vibrant health and hospital systems, an entrepreneurial culture, and the appropriate industrial infrastructure. Senor and Singer1 provide a detailed analysis of the reasons for the surge of technology-based companies in Israel—what they call a start-up nation. In this Viewpoint, we examine the development of Israeli life science research and associated industry and analyse the reasons Israel has become a life science start-up nation.
