  • Soaring to success

    Dr. Rinat Meir, after conducting research at the lab of Prof. Rachela Popovtzer, received the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship and is pursuing her postdoc at Columbia University on new nano-biomaterials in drug-delivery.
  • Licensed to kill bacteria

    Dr. Ilana Perelshtein, a researcher at Prof. Aharon Gedanken’s lab at Bar Ilan, has developed killer coatings that destroy bacteria and viruses. By utilizing a low-cost, non-toxic technique based on ultrasound waves, the lab team produced bacteria-fighting nanoparticles that adhere firmly to fabrics, surgical gear and other medical devices.
  • Bionic eye promises a brighter future

    Dr. Yossi Mandel, Head of the Ophthalmic Science and Engineering Lab at Bar Ilan, is advancing breakthrough retinal prosthesis technology to restore the sight of patients with severely impaired vision. Funded by the prestigious ERC Starting Grant, Mandel’s cross-disciplinary team is devising a hybrid retinal implant that stimulates live neural cells to send visual information to the brain.
  • A note from our director

    It’s been an amazing year full of exciting developments and achievements. In the international arena: Two research collaboration agreements were signed with nano institutes. One with the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) in Portugal, following an initial meeting in May at a conference hosted by BINA, and a second meeting in Portugal in September. Four joint research groups were selected among the 11 groups who submitted applications. The teams will receive research grants co-funded by both institutes. As part of our efforts to include students in the Institute’s activities, a few students travelled with us to Portugal and to other events abroad.
