About BioMed @ TAU

is a collective of biomedical Research Hubs at Tel Aviv University. The biomedical scientific community at TAU performs a vast array of research, encompassing basic to translational research spread across several faculties and hospitals. The Hubs gather together scientists from across the university and in TAU-affiliated hospitals who share overlapping research interests. These collaborative groups host conferences and events related to their subject area in order to highlight advances in the field as well as in their own research. The Hubs also provide the opportunity to strengthen collaborative research between scientists at TAU and will leverage opportunities for collaborative research, joint grant applications and external funding.
