Cell & Developmental Biology (0141)

Track Coordinators: Track Coordinator: Dr. Chen Luxenburg, Prof. Ronit Sagie-Eisenberg




The master's program in Cell and Development Biology prepares students to undertake advanced study and research in this field from the level of the molecule and cell to tissues and whole organisms. 




Please note that the student's curriculum must be approved by his advisor and the program coordinator. The curriculum consists of 28 graduate semester hours divided as follows:


Required Courses

  • All students are required to take departmental courses in Biostatistics, Lab Safety, Research Ethics, and Scientific Writing. These courses should be completed in the first year.
  • For students who work with laboratory animals, an additional 4-hour course is required in the Ethical Conduct and Care of Research Animals.
  • For students basing their thesis in research from observational or interventional studies, the following courses are required: Introduction to Epidemiology, Survey and Research Methods in Epidemiology, and Biostatistics II.


Elective Courses

  • Students must take 14 hours of elective courses in the department. These courses require a basic knowledge in cell biology. They can also take 8 hours of elective courses offered by other departments of the School of Graduate Studies.

 Elective courses of this track are marked in yellow here      




Students must attend at least 25 seminars, of which 60% must be within the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology. The student will keep a record of the lectures and submit a signed form to the Secretariat confirming participation. This form is a requirement for graduation.


If a student attends a scientific conference, it is equivalent to two seminars. Please note that a student will not get approval for more than two conferences. 




Students must submit a research proposal for their thesis by the end of the second semester. The thesis will be submitted by the end of the fourth semester. Students must present their thesis topic within the Department or at a scientific conference. Their advisor must approve their thesis as a condition for completion of the master's degree.
