Novel Integrase Based Cancer Treatment Technology

We have developed a new gene therapy technology for specific cancer cells killing and validated both efficacy and safety superiority of the proposed system over the conventional one in lung cancer mice model. The proposed system offers advantages over already known counterparts and may therefore be developed into a safer and efficient human cancer treatment […] Read More >

Harnessing Inhibitory RNA Based- Nanoparticles for Therapeutic Intervention in Blood Cancers

The current treatment of multiple myeloma (MM) included standard chemotherapy and small molecules such as the proteasome inhibitor and the immunomodulatory drugs.  Although these drugs have improved the response and survival of MM patients, MM is still an incurable disease. Drug resistance and disease refractoriness are the common terminal pathways leading to patients’ mortality. Therefore, […] Read More >

A Novel Nanoparticle that Selectively Delivers RNAi Oligonucelotides to Tumors, Preventing Side Effects to Tissues

UNMET NEEDPancreatic cancer numbers among the most aggressive cancers known today. The overwhelming majority of pancreatic cancer patients pass away within just a year of diagnosis. However, a small minority of patients may live several years with the disease. Our findings pinpoint the inverse correlation between a known oncogene (PLK1) and the expression of an […] Read More >

Novel Ionizable Lipids for Delivery of Nucleic Acids (mRNA, DNA, siRNA)

BackgroundChemotherapy treatment is generally accompanied by adverse effects, which can be significantly reduced using site specific, targeted delivery systems, such as antibody-coated LNPs (immuno-LNPs). However due to inter-and intra-tumor heterogeneity targeting with a single targeting moiety is not sufficient in many cases and in others may induce cancer relapse due to the survival of side […] Read More >

Targeting Human Brain Cells With Adeno-Associated Virus (AAV) for a Prospective Therapeutic Approach

The AAV therapeutic approach for various central nervous system (CNS) illnesses has been rapidly growing. Unfortunately, existing present technologies utilize AAV administration that is injected locally into the brain. This process requires a high level of expertise and is not applicable in more diffused brain targets like cortex and stiratum. Systemic administration of AAV vectors through […] Read More >

New MicroRNAs as Candidates for Depression Therapy

Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a complex, common, and recurrent mental disorder (1). The current first-line treatment for MDD is selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), which are antidepressant drugs that block serotonin reuptake. Two microRNA (miRNAs) molecules namely miR-30b-5p and miR-101a-3p were found to be downregulated in the raphe nuclei (RN) of mice following chronic […] Read More >

Prof. Kolot Mikhail

Research Interests HK022 bacteriophage site specific recombinase Integrase is the tool for human genome manipulation and gene therapy. Site specific recombinases (SSRs) catalase the site-specific recombination reaction between two specific short DNA sequences of 30-40 bp that serve as recombination sites that included integration, excision and inversion. These enzymes are widely used for the genome manipulations […] Read More >

Prof. Jonathan Leor

Professor Leor received an M.D. degree from Tel-Aviv University, continued training in cardiovascular medicine at the Sheba Medical Center, and completed his post doctorate training at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, under Robert A. Kloner, M.D., Ph.D. Today, his laboratory’s research focuses on infarct repair and the heart’s lack of intrinsic regenerative ability. […] Read More >

Prof. Margalit Rimona

Research Interests 1. Micro- and nano-particulate drug delivery technologies for topical, regional and systemic applications:  Our efforts in the drug delivery arena focus on two drug delivery technologies, one veteran and one novel, that are inventions of our group. These technologies each yield, micro and nano sized particles that are composed of biomaterials with particular […] Read More >

Prof. Peer Dan

Our lab is studying how to manipulate cells’ functions in order to generate novel strategies to treat inflammatory diseases and cancers. We are combining multidisciplinary approaches including immunology, cell and molecular biology, genetics, protein engineering, material sciences, nanotechnology and computational techniques for drug discovery and potentially for therapeutics. In addition, we are developing nanomedicines by […] Read More >

Prof. Qimron Ehud

Our lab studies the recently identified adaptive immune system of bacteria, the CRISPR/Cas system. This fascinating system remarkably adapts specifically to defend against newly encountered phages and launches a specific RNA-mediated response against their nucleic acids. In addition, we study novel phage interactions with their bacterial hosts,  and particularly novel interactions of T7 with its […] Read More >
