High resolution deep tissue imaging of turbid media

TechnologyImaging through turbid media such as occluding body fluids (e.g. blood, urine, CSF) is restricted due to strong scattering. In applications such as intravascular optical imaging applications clearing of the imaging path (the lumen) are done by, e.g., locally stopping blood flow. The technology utilizes guided shaped light for minimally-invasive Angioscopy without the necessity to […] Read More >

An Effective Sema3A Antibody as a Therapy for Optic Nerve Neurodegenerative Diseases

Glaucoma and ischemic or neuro-degenerative diseases of the optic nerve lead to vision loss and blindness. These pathologies are associated with progressive apoptosis of the retinal ganglion cells (RGC), a process which involves expression of Semaphorin 3A protein in the axonal guidance pathways. The identified Sema3A antibody provides a potentially innovative therapeutic tool for these […] Read More >

Mapping Transverse Relaxation in Preclinical MRI Scanners

UNMET NEEDAccurate quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (qMRI) is gradually becoming indispensable in clinical diagnostics and research. It’s application on preclinical MRI scanners, however, is hampered by the use of strong imaging gradients, which act to increase the effects of molecular diffusion, leading to bias of the measured signals. This inherent bias makes qMRI techniques irreproducible […] Read More >

Prof. Gazit Ehud

The central dogma in the study of protein folding suggests that the thermodynamically-favorable state of proteins under physiological conditions is their folded one. However, there are number of cases in which the favorable states of proteins are rather unfolded, partially folded (e.g., “molten globular”), or misfolded (e.g., nonspecific aggregates or amyloid fibrils). These observations lead […] Read More >

Drug Screening Animal Model for Anti-compulsive Activity

We have developed the signal attenuation rat model of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). This model is based on the theoretical proposition that compulsive behaviors result from a deficit in the feedback, which is associated with the performance of normal goal-directed responses.  In our model, the goal-directed behavior is lever-pressing for food. The feedback associated with making […] Read More >
