In accordance with a novel approach now implemented in the better medical schools around the world, a research institute has been established in the Faculty of Medicine, with research centers for both investigators exploring traditional (pre-clinical studies in medical fields) and clinical research.
The guiding principle in the Faculty of Medicine is Translational Research – applying targeted research to specific issues that arise in hospitals and clinics.
Sophisticated, state-of-the-art research laboratories have been established at the Safed campus. These laboratories are run and directed by scientists who were recruited from prestigious laboratories around the globe to conduct advanced medical research. They work in tight collaboration with clinical researchers from hospitals in the Galilee area, where new research wings are to be established.
Advanced Degrees (M.Sc and Ph.D) in Medical Sciences
The Graduate curriculum consists of courses and research work. The subject matter of each student will be determined in consultation with the advisor.
The research will be carried out in research laboratories at the Faculty of Medicine located in Safed, or in research laboratories affiliated hospitals in the Galilee.
Research fields include:
* Cancer Research
* Medical Microbiology and Virology
* Computational Biology (Bioinformatics)
* Developmental Biology
* Cell biology
* Health Care
* Medical Ethics
