Welcome to The Alexander Silberman Institute of Life Science

Welcome to the Institute of Life Sciences

Biological research is vital to the advancement of many areas of life – medicine, agriculture, environment, industry, education, public policy and contributes to the welfare of human society.
We at the Institute of Life Sciences are partners in this effort (read about our Research Groups) and stand at the forefront of world research (see Prizes & Honors as well as Research Innovations).
Our scientific work combines basic research with practical aspects. Our research deals with a variety of processes and mechanisms, while integrating and linking the various organizational levels in the animal and plant world (see the Dissertation Topics we offer you).
Our close proximity to leading researchers in chemistry, physics, earth sciences, mathematics and computer science enables us to create unique and innovative interdisciplinary collaborations and to offer you a variety of Study Programs.
We will introduce you to the intellectual challenges and creativity in the field of life sciences and expose you to critical and creative thinking, thus preparing you for the variety of Employment Opportunities of the 21st century.
