Method for Isolating Oral Mucosa-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells for Tissue and Organ Regeneration

Identification and isolation of the mesenchymal stem cells from the general population of oral mucosa-derived cells may further improve regenerative therapies. Using cutting edge technology, we’ve been able to identify the subpopulation of mesenchymal stem cells with superior osteogenic capacity and furthermore, to unveil a list of unique markers to isolate these cells. Our findings […] 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 >

Nanomedicine is medical treatment at the level of single molecules or molecular assemblies that provide structure, control, signaling, homeostasis, and motility in cells, i.e., at the “nano” scale of about 100 mm or less. There have been many scientific and technological advances in both physical and biological sciences over the past several years that make nano medicine […] Read More >

Our research focuses on the development of a cell replacement therapy for diabetes, in which the insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells are destroyed or malfunction. Our approaches for generation of an abundant source of cells for transplantation include expansion and differentiation in tissue culture of beta cells from human organ donors, as well as differentiation of […] Read More >

Research Activity The Circadian Clock system All organisms demonstrate a wide variety of behavioral and physiological daily rhythms that are driven by an evolutionary conserved endogenous circadian clock mechanism. Maintenance of circadian rhythms is crucial for the physical and mental wellbeing, and disruption of the rhythms increases susceptibility to diseases and psychiatric disorders. Utilizing the […] 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 >
