The Israel Society For Biotechnology Engineering
The purpose of the society is to become home to the multidisciplinary community of those involved in the field of biotechnology engineering. It is geared towards scientists and students from universities and colleges, R&D professionals and biotechnology engineers from the industry.
The discipline of Biotechnology Engineering encompasses the understanding of biological systems based on their chemical, physical properties and on engineering principles. Its basic aim is to utilize biological and biomimetic systems to develop technologies and research fields needed to promote human health through medical advances and to protect the environment via the sustainable use of natural resources.
Biotechnology Engineering resides in the junction between life sciences, chemical process engineering, chemistry, and physics. Together with a profound understanding of living systems from the genetic level that incorporates in-depth knowledge of biomaterials and biological processes involved, this field engages engineering principles that enable the development of methods and processes on an industrial scale.
