The publishers of this volume emphasize the importance of scientific research for a country small in size and poor in natural resources. The Hebrew University and the Hadassah Association hoped in sponsoring this volume that it would serve not only as a guide to what has been accomplished, but even more so to what remains to be done. Their achievements, they feel, have been modest. The investigations described have been carried out for the most part during the brief period of Israel's statehood. What is important, however, is that an atmosphere conducive to scientific investigation has been created. Emphasis is placed on both fundamental and applied research.

The volume is divided into 2 sections, one describing research of a regional and applied nature in the fields of public health and social medicine and the other dealing with fundamental studies such as experimental biology, research in medical disciplines, botany, and zoology.
