NEW YORK (JTA) — A New York-based foundation has given $1.8 million to the American Technion Society for kidney research at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa.

The grant from the E. Ike Eshaghian Foundation will be used for three core projects that address the causes and complications of kidney disease, according to the release from the Technion society.
