Microbes in Health & Disease
The new BioMed @ TAU Research Hub in Microbes in Health and Disease brings together the community of people at TAU working with microbes and host responses to them. The Hub will include researchers from faculties across the university and TAU-affiliated hospitals, whose research involves microbiology, the microbiome, host/pathogen interactions and the effects and responses to antimicrobial drugs and compounds.
The Hub will hold meetings and events that foster interdisciplinary collaborations, make our science more visible to the scientific community (locally and internationally) and identify increased funding for this important research area. A specific goal is to start planning for a symposium, to be held in the spring, which will highlight our research and include at least one invited international speaker.
