NYU Tel Aviv Biology Symposium in Tel Aviv, March 18-19, 2015

The NYU Tel Aviv Biology Symposium in Tel Aviv will open Wednesday evening, March 18, with a public lecture by Dr. Yaron Daniely, the Academic Director of the MBA program with focus on biomedical management at the College of Management in Rishon le-Zion in Israel. Daniely is also CEO of Alcobra Pharma and Ph.D. graduate of the NYU Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences. His talk, entitled Biomedical Entrepreneurship and Innovations in Israel, will highlight recent achievements in this Israeli industry and will be accessible to the general public.

On Thursday, March 19, the symposium will continue with an all-day program of scientific talks by speakers from NYU, Tel Aviv University and other Israeli institutions. The symposium will highlight cutting-edge experimental and theoretical approaches linking population-level phenomena with traits of individual cells and organisms.

Traditionally studying away has been an opportunity unavailable to the STEM students seeking to meet their degree requirements on time. With course offerings in biology, chemistry, and physics, NYU Tel Aviv proudly represents the ever increasing opportunities within NYU’s global network for STEM students to expand their cultural awareness abroad while earning credits towards their major.
