Translational and Applied Research Programs

Translational and Applied Research Programs

MIGAL encourages leading researchers to become involved in translational research and later in R&D efforts based on their work. Our research forms the basis for a large number of agro-innovation and BioMed projects, some of which ended up as successful, publically traded, biotech companies. MIGAL’s unique Research-Entrepreneurs program allows researchers to pursue high-risk commercialization oriented projects.
