TAU has more biomedical scientists than any other university in Israel, including 1,400 researcher-clinicians working in 20 TAU-affiliated hospitals. The University draws on these ties – as well as partnerships with government ministries and pharma companies – to transform lab discoveries into treatments that ease suffering and save lives.
EcoHealth Research Collaboration with Meir Medical Center: Bringing together researchers from environment, medicine and other fields, this project will research environmentally-linked issues ranging from skin cancer to food allergies, while promoting the development of more sustainable hospital processes.
SPARK Translational Medicine Center – Research Projects: Affiliated with a worldwide network led by Stanford University, this Center is revolutionizing the model for how Israeli medical discoveries reach the clinic. It harnesses TAU’s robust ties with hospitals and the biotech & pharma industries to fast track new or repurposed drugs into clinical trials.
School of Public Health: This graduate school fosters cooperation and integration between academia and the health and emergency services – both locally and worldwide – and makes policy recommendations.
School of Psychological Sciences: ranked among the world’s top 75 psychology departments, the School creates and shares new knowledge on mental health using state-of-the-art imaging methods for the brain.
Center for Metabolite Medicine: housed in a sparkling, large new lab suite with robotic equipment, the Center seeks to better understand “metabolites,” small biochemical substances that our bodies produce naturally and that could dramatically improve doctors’ diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease.
Smolarz Family Building of Life Sciences – Sub Units: Serving as a literal bridge between the Sherman and Porter life sciences buildings, this building features four state-of-the-art teaching labs, an outdoor entrance plaza, a seminar room and two student lounges, all beautiful and waiting for naming.
