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.
$500,000 per year SPARK Translational Medicine Center: Affiliated with a worldwide network led by Stanford University, this Center fast-tracks projects for repurposing existing drugs or developing new ones into the clinical trial stage.
$20 million 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.
$10 million 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.
$7 million Center for Metabolite Medicine: This emerging, technologically advanced field seeks to better understand “metabolites,” small biochemical substances that our bodies produce naturally and that could dramatically improve doctors’ diagnosis as well as the prevention and treatment of disease.
