AUB: Scales Up Partnership with University of Michigan

The American University of Beirut’s (AUB) most high-level visit to a major U.S. university took place last week, to the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, through a senior delegation including Deans of the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) Dr. Iman Nuwayhid, Faculty of Medicine (FM) Mohamed Sayegh, and Maroun Semaan Faculty of Engineering and Architecture (MSFEA), Dr. Alan Shihadeh, along with professor of medicine and director of the AUB Diabetes Program, Dr. Sami Azar, and leading diabetes researcher and associate professor, Dr. Assaad Eid.

AUB was invited by the National Academy member, world renowned neurologist, and director of the UM Program for Neurology and Discovery, Dr. Eva Feldman, whom we were honored to welcome at FHS and at the AUB Medical Center last year, when she came to share her cutting-edge knowledge of the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases using stem cell therapy.
