Organisation profile

A driving force in the future world economy, biotechnology is a multidisciplinary field that allies the life sciences with various disciplines of engineering to create a plethora of essential materials and devices for human society. The Avram and Stella Goldstein-Goren Department of Biotechnology Engineering, which currently has 14 faculty members, was founded in 2000 and has since strived to become a world leader through important contributions to the field. Research at the Department covers a wide range of topics focusing on “hi-tech” areas of biotechnology, such as tissue engineering, biosensors, biochips, nanobiotechnology, genetic engineering, drug discovery, wastewater remediation, and biomaterials, as well as on more traditional biotechnological processes of bioreactor cultivation and separation. Despite a strong emphasis on applicability, the researchers also make significant contributions to basic research. Our graduates have found employment in post-doctoral and faculty positions at prestigious universities, as well as significant positions at large pharmaceutical companies and start-ups. They are found in R&D, business, and legal areas of biotechnology, as well as becoming entrepreneurs themselves. Our faculty members have licensed intellectual property, as well as spun-off innovations in various start-up ventures. They have participated in the creation of centers abroad and taken significant temporary positions as invited professors at peer universities
