    Msc Study Track in Cellular Biology and Immunology 

     

    The Cell Biology and Immunology Track is שמ English track designed to prepare students for future independent careers in research and teaching in cell biology and immunology or related disciplines. The educational program emphasizes interdisciplinary training and collaborative and interactive research, an approach based on the idea that solving difficult problems requires the integration of individuals with common goals but differing expertise. 

    Admission

    As in the Graduate School regulations. However, applicant must find first a mentor from the dept. pull of faculty members of the Faculty of Life Sciences.

    Preliminary requirements

    One of the following laboratories: biochemistry, microbiology, molecular biology of the cell, genetics or Immunology.

    For students with an undergraduate degree in biology in a dual-department track: the following undergraduate courses are viewed by the track views as an essential condition for admission: Cell biology, Molecular biology and biotechnology, Genetics.

    Study program

    The study program, built for two years of study (4 semesters), includes required and elective courses, research work, submission of a written summary of the research work (MSc thesis) , and defending it in a final examination. The study program totals 30 semester hours, some of  which will be Graduate School courses as detailed below (that is, courses open MSc and PhD students only. Third year undergraduate students will be admitted to these courses with special approval only).

    The study program for each student will be approved by the track committee. A supplementary studies program for students coming from other institutions or other faculties will be determined by the track committee.

     

    Head of Track: Prof. Gerardo Lederkremer

     

    The scope of studies for the master's degree is 30 semester hours, according to the following breakdown:

     

    Required faculty courses - 10 s/h

    Safety in the Laboratory course (during the first year of studies) – no credit

    Group research seminar – 2 s/h

    Departmental seminar for MSc students –all students will participate in the seminar given by the Departments in which he performs his research – 2 s/h each year

     

    One of the courses:

    Biostatistics – 4 s/h

    Statistical principles in experimental biology – 5 s/h

    The teachers of the courses will evaluate acquired knowledge

     

    If these courses have been studied during the undergraduate degree, they will be replaced by elective courses (from the graduate or third year undergraduate degree course), of the same number of hours.

    Students whose research paper will include working with animals in the laboratory must take the course: "Principles of the use of laboratory animals in bio-medical research", given by the Faculty of Medicine.

     

     Elective courses - making up to 30 s/h

    Students must make up a total of 30 hours from Graduate School courses and/or undergraduate courses. It is also possible to make up courses from other faculties, with the consent of the student's advisor, but the weight of courses from faculties other than Medicine, Engineering, or Exact Sciences will be no more than 4 semester hours. In any event, the program in its entirety and any changes made to it require the approval of the student's advisor and the track committee.
