Usage of Toxic Materials in Research

Approval of Safety Department

All experimental research activities (excluded are non-medical experiments) must be approved in advance by the campus safety department. A request should be transmitted to the campus safety department via the Research System. A research budget will not be activated if the safety appendix is not approved by the safety department.

Usage of Disease Pathogens

In light of the potential dangers pathogen research holds for society and the environment, especially the risk of their misuse, the Knesset has legislated a law regarding such research. Accordingly, the University has set intramural regulations which are binding on university researchers and their staff.
