Recent decades have witnessed a revolution in the life sciences. New biotechnology wonders have sprung into existence and carved out profound and lasting impacts on individuals and communities around the globe. From advances in sustainable agriculture and environmental protection to medical marvels like gene therapy, smart diagnostics and assisted reproductive technology to breakthroughs in organic chemistry and pharmacology, biotechnology is changing the way we live our lives.
The biotechnology curriculum at Hadassah College addresses many developing fields of biotechnology, including molecular biology, drug design and pharmacogenomics, DNA analysis, protein activity guided modeling, bioinformatics, microbiology, molecular genetics and immunology.
The great career potential of biotechnology is reflected in various industries' efforts to develop new products from emerging technologies. A vast amount of biological knowledge, particularly in the field of molecular biology, has been generated in recent years. But despite the success in accumulating this raw data, there remains a desperate need for more trained professions to apply this knowledge. Israel, a world leader in biotechnology research and industry, has particular need of such professionals. In response to this need, the Hadassah College B.Sc. in Biotechnology program is designed to prepare its graduates equally for advancement in academia and/or direct integration into the nation's growing biotech sector.
