JERUSALEM (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, during a weeklong trade mission to Israel, says the University of Maryland, Baltimore is expanding ties with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Hogan said the "agreement will further strengthen the successful partnership between these world-class universities and help to advance research in Maryland, particularly in the study of military medicine."

He said a Memorandum of Understanding was signed on Sunday "to explore opportunities for joint research or training, exchange scholars for seminars and conferences, and increase the exchange of students and faculty for research, teaching, and study over the next five years."

Hogan is in Israel leading a delegation of business and academic leaders along with state officials as part of a weeklong economic development trip.

Meetings focused on cybersecurity, biotech and medical industries.
