    Bar-Ilan Study: Parental PTSD Affects Health Choices, Aging, of Holocaust survivors’ Children

    A new study on intergenerational transmission of trauma, conducted by Prof. Amit Shrira, Deputy Chairman of the Interdisciplinary Department of Social Sciences, has found evidence that Holocaust survivors suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and their adult offspring exhibit more unhealthy behavior patterns and age less successfully in comparison to survivors with no signs of PTSD or parents who did not experience the Holocaust and their offspring.  The research was covered by The Jewish Press and Breaking Israel News.

    Israeli Scientists Say Gulf of Aqaba Corals Can Survive Climate Change

    A new study, conducted in the lab of Prof. Maoz Fine, of the Mina and Everard Goodman Faculty of Life Sciences, finds that even when parent corals from the Gulf of Aqaba experience increased temperatures and ocean acidification stress during the peak reproductive period, they are not only able to maintain normal physiological function, but also have the same reproductive output and produce offspring that function and survive as well as those which were produced under today's ambient water conditions. The research was covered by the Spanish newswire service EFE and resulted in many articles in Spanish, including in Spain's leading daily newspapers La Razon and La Vanguardia, The Jerusalem Post, Breaking Israel News, The Jewish Press, and publications in South American countries such as La Tribuna, Naturahoy, Milenio, and iton Gadol.
