M.Sc. and Ph.D. studies in Biology
The Faculty of Biology at the Technion was founded in 1971. Since its establishment, we at the Faculty of Biology at the Technion see it as a goal to advance the field of modern biology and life sciences in general, to educate and train the future generation to integrate into academia and industry and lead biological research in Israel and around the world. We aim to provide our students a strong foundation in the exact sciences along with a broad knowledge in all areas of biology and encourage critical and creative thinking to advance the biology of tomorrow.
In recent years, we have witnessed tremendous development in the field of biological technologies, such as genome sequencing, which has led to a revolution in research dealing with the analysis of biological big data. Our research focuses on a variety of questions in the fields of biology and medicine as well as multidisciplinary topics such as biochemistry, biophysics, bioinformatics, and more.
The Faculty has about 36 world-class research labs, where you can get hands-on experience and an opportunity for academic development in many different areas of research, with an emphasis on researching complex molecular structures in various fields of life sciences.
The areas of research conducted by our Faculty include:
- Structural biology
- Bioinformatics and computational biology
- Molecular genetics and genetic engineering
- Genomics and proteomics
- Developmental biology
- Research of cancer and drug development
- Stem cells and tissue recreation
- Microbial ecology
