Biodegradable, Multifunctional, Jellyfish Based Bioplastics

Plastic pollution has become the most pressing environmental issue, and biodegradable solutions are a promising alternative. Unfortunately, most plastic alternatives are difficult to upscale and require the cultivation of the process substrate. Due to climate change, overfishing, and habitat modifications Jellyfish (JF) blooms are prevalent, resulting in the harm of electrical powerhouse, industrial cooling systems, […] Read More >

Jellyfish׳ Collagen-Based Smart Wound Dressing with Antibacterial Properties

Collagen-based dressing in wounds greatly benefits the healing process. Unfortunately, most collagen is extracted from bovine tissues, which bears a significant risk of transmitting various biological contaminations. Moreover, the collagen extraction process from bovine tissue involves time and cost-consuming steps, reducing the total collagen yield and increasing the overall cost of goods. In addition, the […] 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 >
