Our Faculty of Biology marks 50 years of academic and research excellence
Our Faculty of Biology marks 50 years of academic and research excellence. Founded in the fall of 1971, the faculty started out as the Horace W. Goldsmith Institute of General and Industrial Microbiology. Now, most of its labs are housed in the the Emerson Life Sciences Building, which was completed in 2011.
Over the years, the faculty has grown from six professors to 30 senior faculty members and eight active Emeritus faculty members, who work at the forefront of modern biology. The faculty’s location in the heart of the Technion campus promotes interdisciplinary research that combines life sciences, medicine, exact sciences and engineering, and spans diverse topics from biochemistry to biophysics.
The faculty’s vision is to continue to lead interdisciplinary research at the Technion and to position itself among the best biology faculties in Israel and around the world.
