The master's program is intended for students with a bachelor's degree in biology and life sciences, students with a DVM degree, or students in the combined DVM/M.Sc program at the Koret School of Veterinary Medicine. The program aims to expand and deepen the knowledge and understanding students attained in their undergraduate studies, and to allow them to take their first steps as researchers.
Students conduct research and write their thesis under the supervision of the lecturers in the Animal Science Department and the Koret School of Veterinary Medicine. Research topics are in both applied and basic sciences, and include improving and increasing productivity; animal welfare; livestock, pet and birds diseases and medicine; public health; development of models for human disease research; and the functionality and control of basic mechanisms at the various levels – the cell, the tissue or the animal as a whole.
