Research Conferences and Seminars

Research is multidisciplinary, as basic scientists and clinicians combine efforts to produce synergy. Research is conducted in the laboratories on the TAU campus, and in the clinical facilities affiliated to the Faculty in 16 hospitals and 17 research institutes. This network of preclinical and clinical teams helps realize the ultimate goals of that research: the basic understanding of human pathophysiology and the improvement of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease.

Modern research has been extended from the whole organism to include the most minute components of the single cell: its chromosomes and DNA, proteins and lipids. These elements are visible only with the most advanced imaging and detection technologies, and sense can be made of them only through sophisticated computing techniques. Modern laboratories must now include state-of-the-art instrumentation to probe the secrets of health and disease. The faculty provides such in-house capabilities through its Interdepartmental Equipment Unit, enabling scientists to compete, and qualify, for research funding.
