New Chemiluminescent Protease Probe for Rapid, Sensitive, and Inexpensive Detection of Live Mycobacterium tuberculosis

Tuberculosis (TB) is a top-ten cause of death worldwide. Successful treatment is often limited by insufficient diagnostic capabilities, especially at the point of care in low-resource settings. The ideal diagnostic must be fast, be cheap, and require minimal clinical resources while providing high sensitivity, selectivity, and the ability to differentiate live from dead bacteria.OUR SOLUTION• We […] Read More >

Therapeutic Monoclonal Antibodies to Combat Multidrug-Resistant Pathogenic Bacteria

It is predicted that a failure to address the problem of antibiotic-resistant pathogens will result in the death of 10 million people annually, costing the economy more than 100 trillion dollars by the year 2050. In high-income countries where antibiotics are heavily used in the community and agriculture, the strong selection pressure and non-completed antibiotic […] Read More >


Automated Processing Of Non-Invasive Thermal Imaging Of Organ-Specific Diseases To Detect Inflammation And Vascular Dysfunction

During the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, rapid and sensitive screening tools for SARS-CoV2 infection were defined critical for limiting the spread of COVID-19 and for allocating national resources properly. Researchers have developed and tested a new point-of-care, non-contact, thermal camera that connects directly to smartphones combined with image-processing algorithms, and machine learning-based analysis, to detect inflammation […] Read More >

Epitope Based Vaccines for Flaviviruses

Flaviviridae are a family of positive, single-stranded enveloped RNA viruses that are typically transmitted to humans via mosquitoes and ticks. Yellow Fever virus, West Nile virus and Dengue virus are examples of human Flavivirus pathogens. Dengue virus has 4 serotypes, and getting infected by one serotype, does not protect against the other three. Moreover, pre-infection […] Read More >

Prof. Barzel Adi

Our lab will focus on gene therapy using viral vectors. We will tackle diseases ranging from cancer to viral infections and diabetes. Devising safe and efficient gene therapies combines challenges in biochemistry and molecular biology with challenges in physiology, immunology, virology and more. We will focus on genome editing- the site specific manipulation of the […] Read More >

Dr. Geiger is an associate professor at the department of Human Molecular Genetics and Biochemistry at the Faculty of Medicine at Tel Aviv University. Geiger completed her BSc studies in life sciences at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. She then continued and performed her MSc and PhD studies in the same university studying cancer signaling […] Read More >

Prof. Gershoni Jonathan M.

Research Interests Our objective is to elucidate molecular mechanisms of biorecognition. How do receptors bind their corresponding ligands? How do viruses recognize their target cells? What enables the immune system to identify self antigens and to eliminate foreign invaders? The research is a combination of protein biochemistry, monoclonal antibody technology and combinatorial phage display systems […] Read More >

Prof. Rechavi Oded

Prof. Oded Rechavi’s mission is to challenge fundamental long-held scientific dogmas. He found an exception to the original “Cell Theory”, provided the first direct evidence that an acquired trait can be inherited, elucidated an alternative transgenerational inheritance mechanism (that depends on inherited small RNA molecules, not DNA molecules), discovered a mechanism that allows nematodes’ brains […] Read More >

Prof. Shabat Doron

Research Self-immolative dendrimers are unique structural molecules that can release all of their tail units, through a domino-like chain fragmentation, which is initiated by a single cleavage at the dendrimer’s core. Incorporation of drug molecules as the tail units and an enzyme substrate as the trigger, can generate a multi-prodrug unit that is activated with […] Read More >

The lab for Molecular Biology of Aging

Advances in biomedical science have cured multiple diseases and greatly improved healthspan and lifespan. However, aging is the strongest risk factor for most causes of death in the western world, and thus these advances have resulted in a relatively small increase in maximal lifespan. Without a systematic approach to understand and treat the aging process, […] Read More >
