The Institute of Biochemistry, Food Science and Nutrition hosts visiting scientists, exchange students, and postdoctoral fellows from around the world, creating a vibrant academic community and an atmosphere of intellectual discourse and exchange. The relatively small size of the Hebrew University’s Rehovot campus enables staff and students from the Institute to interact with colleagues from around the Robert H. Smith Faculty in a stimulating and professional environment. The Institute offers advanced facilities and laboratories, state-of-the-art equipment, information resources and dedicated employees.
