Nanodrug tames leishmaniasis and other parasitic diseases

Bar-Ilan researcher working to commercialize her formula that protects against and treats diseases from trypanosomes transmitted by biting flies.

Prof. Shulamit Michaeli, vice president for research at Israel’s Bar-Ilan University, is working to commercialize a nanodrug to protect against and treat leishmaniasis and other diseases caused by trypanosomes transmitted by biting flies, such as sleeping sickness (African trypanosomiasis) and Chagas disease (American trypanosomiasis) prevalent in Latin America.

In collaboration with Prof. Jean-Paul (Moshe) Lellouche, chairman of Bar-Ilan’s chemistry department, Michaeli’s life-sciences lab in the Bar-Ilan Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials (BINA) developed a patented compound that kills the two types of Leishmania parasites found in Israel as well as the Leishmania that cause visceral leishmaniasis.

A combination of a polymer and a pharmaceutical ingredient bonded together by specially fabricated iron oxide nanoparticles, the drug takes only about 20 minutes to do its job in the lab culture.

הסוד למורכבות גנטית אצל בני האדם 

פרופ’ שולמית מיכאלי, סגנית נשיא למחקר באוניברסיטת בר-אילן, חוקרת את המנגנון הגנטי שמסביר מדוע אנו הרבה יותר מורכבים מכפי שחשבו עד שנות ה-2000, ואיך מיישמים את הידע שנצבר על האינטראקציה בין גנים בטיפול בשושנת יריחו.

לאדם ולגרגר אורז יש מספר גנים די דומה – כ-30-45 אלף גנים בעלי תפקיד ברור באדם, ו-32-55 אלף באורז. ובכל זאת, אדם הוא יצור מורכב ומתוחכם, פאר הבריאה, בעוד שאורז – הוא בסך הכול אורז. פרופ’ שולמית מיכאלי, סגנית נשיא למחקר באוניברסיטת בר-אילן וחוקרת בולטת בתחום ביטוי גנים, מרגיעה: אנחנו אכן מורכבים יותר מאורז. הסיבה לכך היא מנגנון ביולוגי המאפשר לנו לנצל אותו מספר גנים באופן הרבה יותר מוצלח.

Researchers Invent Nano-Drops That Improve Nearsightedness and Farsightedness

 Nano-Drops May Offer New Alternative to Current Methods of Vision Correction

A revolutionary, cutting-edge technology, developed by researchers at Bar-Ilan University’s Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials (BINA), has the potential to provide a new alternative to eyeglasses, contact lenses, and laser correction for refractive errors.

The technology, known as Nano-Drops, was developed by Dr. David Smadja (Ophthalmologist from Shaare Zedek Medical Center), Prof. Zeev Zalevsky, from Bar-Ilan’s Kofkin Faculty of Engineering, and Prof. Jean-Paul Moshe Lellouche, Head of the Department of Chemistry at Bar-Ilan. A related patent on this new invention was recently filed by Birad – Research & Development Company Ltd., the commercializing company of Bar-Ilan University.  Steve Elbaz is a Co-Founder and Chief Business Officer of the new technology.

Israeli Development: The software that will predict the next fatal accident

An artificial intelligence platform developed at Bar-Ilan University identifies the places that are prone to accidents at any given moment.

Soon you will enter a pilot project in the Israel Police, which will launch mobile vehicles to any dangerous point in real time. Will this stop the carnage on the roads?

Israeli Development: The software that will predict the next fatal accident


Prof. Zeev Zalevsky of the Faculty of Engineering tells of some of the inventions that have grown in his research lab.
Such as socks that measure heart rate, glasses that allow the blind to see, and a laser beam that can diagnose why the ear hurts the child.
The devices developed by Zalevsky in the biomedical field, for which more than 58 patents are registered, are breakthrough inventions that advance science and humanity.

Researchers seek to beat death: "Animals can teach us a lot about old age "

For thousands of years Eden has not been able to beat death and win eternal life, but some still try.

Several researchers around the country are examining how systems in different animals can teach us about the aging process, and how it can be beat.

Prof. Haim Cohen and other researchers from Bar-Ilan University, researchers are living a little more familiar in the laboratory.

By studying a process that extends the lives of mice by 30 to 40 percent, they hope to succeed and slow aging. In the meantime they had extended the life of the mice by a third.
