Faculty members focus on basic and clinical research. The research at the faculty advances our understanding of human biology, the mechanisms of diseases of the human body, as well as development of novel therapeutic approaches and drugs leveraging the strengths of the Technion as a top engineering and research institution. Faculty members come from diverse backgrounds, with training in the biological and medical sciences, exact sciences or engineering, all take part in teaching the medical and advanced degree students. In addition, many faculty combine basic and clinical research alongside their medical practice.
The research departments are home for scientists studying cell biology, development, genetics, physiology, immunology, neuroscience, and translational research. Several faculty who are active clinicians focus on translational research.
Research centers advance collaborative efforts cutting across disciplines and research departments from within the faculty, as well as the wider Technion community.
Core facilities provide Technion researchers as well as industry and other academic institutions, access to state-of-the-art equipment and technologies.
