As a Research Assistant at Tel Aviv University’s Sackler School of Medicine, you will work with Dr. Yona Keisari. A faculty member of the Department of Human Microbiology, Dr. Keisari’s research involves testing immunological systems in mice for application in human cancers.
Your daily tasks will include:
-Reading research articles on topics in the lab’s field of study
-Histology and preparing cells in the hood
-Working with animal test subjects (ie, measuring tumor size, performing surgery or electrochemical treatments, etc.)
You may also have the opportunity to sit in on medical school lectures and courses.
-Knowledge of cell biology, immunology, and pathology advantageous, but is not necessary if one is willing to put in the extra work to learn these things outside of the internship
