About the Project
Fulfilling Tel-Hai College’s mission as an engine for promoting regional growth through the development of human capital and research infrastructure for knowledge-based industry, the Helmsley Science Building for Health, Environment and Biotechnology Studies will serve its residents, Tel-Hai/Migal researchers, as a home for research work and a hub for scientific networking; The building it will also serve Tel-Hai M.Sc. students in their advanced projects and undergraduate students in their exposure to future opportunities in academic scientific inquiry.
The building will occupy an area of 3000 square meters over three floors and will be composed of classrooms, fourteen advanced teaching and research laboratories, animal care rooms and public and administrative spaces. Built on the Leven Campus (Eastern Campus), the Helmsley Science Building will be the first stage in the plan for the Science Complex – a comprehensive space for encouraging learning, creative research and multi-disciplinary discourse among students and researchers.
Master’s degree students will join laboratory teams that include faculty and researchers, technicians, post-docs and research fellows who will staff the building spaces. The concentration of research activities in once complex will enlarge the scope of guidance, knowledge and skills acquired by master’s students during the framework of their studies.
Planned research fields will mainly serve the programs in biotechnology, environmental and nutritional sciences in topics related to cancer, immunology, food, nutrition, metabolism, health and alternative energy. The building will also include two classrooms that will serve the entire student population on campus and will open new horizons for undergraduate students for future research study tracks.
