About Us
Providing support for early-stage drug discovery

The BLAVATNIK CENTER for Drug Discovery (BCDD) is a fully integrated center for translational research, based at Tel Aviv University, that comprises medicinal chemistry, biological target identification and computer-assisted drug design units under one roof.


The (BCDD) is the first complex of this kind at an Israeli university, and provides a state-of-the-art R&D environment and academic platform in the relevant fields of early stage drug discovery.


The BCDD International Advisory Board and Academic Board

An academic board was appointed to include the academic director together with representatives of the four relevant TAU faculties (Medicine, Life Sciences, Exact Sciences and Engineering).


An International Advisory Board for the BCDD is appointed, to comprise experts in the drug discovery field. The Committee's primary responsibility is to select and monitor the BCDD's scientific projects and initiatives including reviewing outcomes and measuring success. The Board meetings hold on a half yearly basis, on the TAU campus, to review previous and proposed research activity and issue recommendations.
