JERUSALEM, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Oramed Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQCM: ORMP) (http://www.oramed.com), a
developer of oral delivery systems, announced today that the Company's CEO
Nadav Kidron has been invited to be a panelist for a breakouts session at the
BIO International Convention in Chicago, Illinois, USA. The breakout session,
titled "Can Israel Become the Next Biotech Start-Up Nation?" will take place
on Tuesday, April 23^rd, from 9:00-9:45am during the International Market
Briefings Track.

Panel Description:

In the last 20 years, Israel has become a model for high tech
entrepreneurship. A country of 8 million people, Israel is home to a vibrant
academic biomedical research sector, a global pharmaceutical company and
several public biotech companies. Yet, the success of Israel's biotech sector
pales in comparison to its high-tech industry. What can be learned from the
Israeli Hi-tech Innovation and Entrepreneurship model and how can it be
applied to biotech? What can Israel learn from other success models in
biotechnology such as Massachusetts or California? Which regional partnerships
can best leverage Israel's potential? What is the optimal positioning for
Israeli Biotech to encourage biopharma companies and investors to step up
their involvement?

The BIO International Convention is hosted by the Biological Industry
Organization (BIO) and is one of the largest and most widely attended annual
conferences in the biotechnology sphere. For more information on BIO Chicago
