Title: Toxoplasma gondii - a master manipulator: From effectordiscovery to novel concepts in cell death.Abstract: Toxoplasma gondii translocates effector proteins into its host cell tosubvert various host pathways. T. gondii effector TgIST blocks thetranscription of interferon-stimulated genes to reduce immune defense.Interferons upregulate numerous genes,...

Regulation of mitochondrial trafficking by Myosin XIX during cell migration. Myosin XIX (Myo19) is an actin-based molecular motor that is anchored to the outer mitochondria membrane (OMM) via its unique membrane binding motif. Myo19 is a strong effector of filopodia...

The Faculty of Biology at the Technion was founded in 1971. Since its establishment, we at the Faculty of Biology at the Technion see it as a goal to advance the field of modern biology and life sciences in general, to educate and train the future generation to integrate into academia and industry and lead biological research in Israel and around the world. We aim to provide our students a strong foundation in the exact sciences along with a broad knowledge in all areas of biology and encourage critical and creative thinking to advance the biology of tomorrow.

In recent years, we have witnessed tremendous development in the field of biological technologies, such as genome sequencing, which has led to a revolution in research dealing with the analysis of biological big data. The location of the Faculty of Biology in the heart of the Technion gives it a unique status and promotes groundbreaking interdisciplinary research, combining life sciences, exact sciences, and engineering. In the research laboratories in our faculty, we combine basic research with applied aspects while developing and employing state-of-the-art approaches and methodologies. Our research focuses on a variety of questions in the fields of biology and medicine as well as multidisciplinary topics such as biochemistry, biophysics, bioinformatics, and more. Our vision is to promote and lead interdisciplinary research at the Technion and to position the faculty among the best faculties of biology in Israel and around the world.
