Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba announced Sunday they have opened a National Autism Research Center at the university.
The center, funded partly by the ministries of Health and of Science and Technology and headed by Prof. Ilan Dinstein, Dr. Gal Meiri, Dr. Idan Menashe and Dr. Hava Golan, aims to be “Israel’s leading information and research center on the subject of autism and will be the coordinating body to assemble national studies on autism,” the institutes said in a statement.
