מחקר פורץ דרך של פרופ' חיה בחיה ברודירודי

Exciting news from the Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials (BINA) was published in Israeli and foreign media.
The research team, led by Prof. Chaya Brodie from the Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials (BINA), Prof. Sivan Korenblit from BIU, along with Dr. Amir Dori from Sheba Medical Center, developed a novel platform to model human muscle diseases using the Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans) worm, a tiny nematode used to understand biological processes. This innovation enables versatile, scalable disease studies and paves the way for personalized disease modeling approaches.
The study, funded by the Israeli Ministry of Innovation, Science, and Technology, was recently published in Disease Models and Mechanisms.

MORAN YADID

חוקרת חדשה הצטרפה למכון- דר' מורן ידיד

Meet our new researcher in the institute of Nanotechnology and advanced materials- Dr. Moran Yadid

Moran did her bachelor and PhD degrees at the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering at the Technion. 
In her PhD Moran studied control mechanisms of cardiac contraction and how the load on the heart determines the kinetics of the contractile filaments. Her studies included theoretical analysis, mathematical modeling, and experimental work on isolated cardiac fibers.

Moran did her postdoc at Harvard SEAS, where she worked on developing instrumented "Heart on Chip", which is engineered cardiac tissues that recapitulate the structure and function of the native heart, with embedded sensors to monitor their contractile function. Moran used the "Heart on Chip" to study interactions between endothelial cells, lining the blood vessels, and the heart cells. In her research Moran revealed that extracellular vesicles secreted by the endothelium contain biological cargo that modulates the cellular response to stress and protects tissues from metabolic stress.

Research Fields: Bioengineering, Regenerative Medicine, Human Organs-on-chips, Extracellular vesicles, Cardiovascular physiology and disease, Cellular stress.
In her lab Moran uses organs-on-chips, which are advanced in vitro models based on human cells, to study organ-organ interactions in health and disease.
Moran expandes: “We use tissue engineering and stem cells technology to build the components of the cardiovascular system, this allows us to study the roles of the endothelium in regulating tissues function under various conditions.
We study extracellular vesicles (EVs) and how they modulate cells and tissues' response to stress (e.g. Ischemia and reperfusion injury), with the goal of developing novel bio-inspired therapeutics.
My lab is a multidisciplinary lab, I employ engineering, biology and material sciences to study human physiology and to develop new approaches for regenerative medicine.

Awards-
Moran recently received ISF funding to develop a human diabetic heart on a chip to study the relations between endothelial dysfunction and tissues response to injury in diabetes.
Moran’s lab also been awarded funds from MOST for drug repurposing to treat AL amyloidosis, using an "organ o chip" approach, and for developing engineered muscle grafts for oral cancer patients undergoing glossectomies.
Moran has been awarded the 2023-2024 Zuckerman Faculty Scholars Award.

“My personal goal is to conduct translational research that will produce an impact on human health and understanding human physiology in health and disease. I believe that significant progress necessitates close collaborations to bring together multiple knowledge and skill sets”
