The objective of the program is to instruct students in the fields of cell biology, tissue organization control, immunology, and cancer research.
The program includes three main areas of research:
1. Cell biology
3. Cancer research
Students with a Bachelor’s degree in a variety of natural sciences and medicine, with a GPA of at least 80, are accepted into the program.
Program studies include:
Students build their curriculum in consultation with their mentor, and the result is submitted to the program director. Elective courses outside the program must be in biology and medicine.
The program requires completion of 28 credits. Students must select at least 20 credits in program courses, determined in coordination with the program chairman.
Students must attend the core course of the program:
94860 Critical Evaluation of Scientific Works – for the First Year Student
Students must participate in at least one of the three core courses of the program (based on their research topic):
81803 Cellular, Molecular Immunology: Selected Issues
81809 Molecular Biology of The Cell
