This book is a contribution to the celebration of the tenth anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel in 1948. It presents the background of scientific achievement before that date, reports briefly subsequent achievements in medical and biological research, and points out the lacunae which should be filled in the immediate future. It has been prepared by 62 contributors under a scientific advisory council of 23, all from the institutions in Israel which are participating in these fields of research. The 2,000 references to publications have been selected from over 5,000.

The book is divided into three parts: Introduction, Regional and Applied Research, and Research of General Nature. In the Introduction the background research from early times through the nineteenth century is mentioned, and the research in the present century is reviewed in the periods prior to and during the British Mandate (1920–1948). Then follow the history and description of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem with its Hadassah teaching hospital and of eleven other institutions of research, administration and public assistance.
