We created IAFI to stand for the principles of academic freedom and the open exchange of ideas.
IAFI will promote worldwide understanding and appreciation of Israeli scientific and academic achievements through international networking and communication; host and support international scientific meetings in Israel as well as bring together Israeli and global academic and scientific leaders in other forums; and locate research fellowships throughout the world for Israeli and Palestinian students.
Andrew Marks, President of IAFI
and Chairman and Professor of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics at Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons, said, "Our goal is to support the academic community in Israel and keep the lines of communication and exchange of ideas open, and not allow this singling out of Israelis, nor allow demands not being made on anyone else, anywhere to be made on Israel.
