Tel Aviv University’s Center for Combating Pandemics (TCCP) brings together the university's top experts in all scientific disciplines, with the goal of promoting research and assisting the Israeli government to cope with crisis situations stemming from epidemic outbreaks.
Established in September 2020 against the backdrop of the worldwide devastation and disruption due to COVID-19, the Center builds on TAU’s innovation record, interdisciplinary culture, and strong links with hospitals, industry and government.
Members and affiliates of the multidisciplinary Center include experts from all 9 faculties of Tel Aviv University, including in the fields of epidemiology, public health, biology, mathematics, computer sciences, physics, statistics, economics, engineering, urban planning, sociology, psychology, management, education, and others. The program of todays conference program is a real testimony for our diversity and multidisciplinarity.
I welcome you to the 1st annual conference of the TCCP. I thank the donors of the center for making its existence and activities possible, and I thank you for joining us in this event.
