Faculties and Departments Overview

The Faculty of Biology is one of two faculties of Life Sciences at the Institute. Together with the sister Faculty of Biochemistry, research efforts span the understanding of life at all levels, from the molecule to the cell and the intact organism. The four Scientific Departments of the Faculty of Biology dedicate their efforts to understanding biological processes in normal and pathological settings.

The Faculty of Biochemistry, along with its sister Faculty of Biology, encompasses Life Sciences research at the Weizmann Institute. A hallmark of modern research in the life sciences is the utilization of multiple and diverse disciplines of science, and their integration into a detailed understanding of the process of life at the levels of molecules, cells, organs, organisms and ecosystems.

The Faculty of Chemistry preserves the dream of Professor Chaim Weizmann, an organic chemist, who was the original visionary of the Weizmann Institute of Science. Research in the Faculty covers a very broad spectrum, ranging from chemistry to physics and biology, from basic to applied science, from theory to experiment, and from the nanometric to the planetary scales.

The Faculty of Physics has 43 faculty members: professors, associate professors, and senior researchers. It is divided to three departments: the department of physics of complex systems, the department of condensed matter physics, and the department of particle physics and astrophysics, and a unit of physical services. There is about an equal number of experimentalists and theorists.
