Beauty is only skin deep
Injecting cosmetic drugs into the skin to gain a younger look involves invasive, painful procedures. Prof. Dror Fixler and a team of BIU researchers use innovative chemical and optical techniques to demonstrate that inserting nano-particles of these materials enhances their efficacy while eliminating the pain.
Hands-on chemistry at BINA
BINA hosted a Focused-Ion Beam (FIB) workshop, organized by the Graduate Student Division of the Israel Chemistry Society, attendedby students from universities around the country, studying for advanced degrees in chemistry.
Solving a Cryptic Puzzle with a Little Help from a Hologram
Scientists from Bar-Ilan University and Harvard have cracked the code of several enigmatic experiments – performed over the past 15 years on superconductors – by developing a mathematical tool to find the shape of the electrons in these materials. Their recent discovery published in Nature Physics provides an innovative technique for calculating the shapes of electrons. This finding will help scientists gain a better understanding of the properties of complex materials, said Dr. Emanuele Dalla Torre of BIU's Department of Physics.
A Life-Saving Israeli App
Reporty, the world’s first free and easy-to-download video emergency app, was developed and is produced and marketed by a team of experts including a number of BIU grads.
Trailblazing Study into Tourette Syndrome
Internationally recognized for his pioneering research into Tourette syndrome, BIU neurophysiologist Prof. Izhar Bar-Gad has uncovered the mechanism that determines the timing of tics associated with the disorder that affects millions of children and adults worldwide. This is an important step toward understanding and hopefully, also controlling the involuntary head jerking, rapid blinking, "barking" and even cursing and rib punching, which exacerbates their daily lives.
BIU Bible Scholar Exposes King David's Elite Commander
After an ancient clay jug found in the biblical Sha'arayim – where David fought Goliath – was painstakingly pieced together, a noted BIU Bible scholar sheds light on the inscription "Eshbaal son of Beda." Prof. Emeritus Moshe Garsiel, an authority on King David's history, believes the mysterious persona was the Sha'arayim fortress commander and co-founder of an elite military unit in the Kingdom of Judah.
A Powerhouse of Renewable Energy
“I envision a world powered by renewable energy. We are totally dependent on petroleum-based fossil fuels, which are rapidly depleting,” says Betina Tabah, a PhD candidate in the Chemistry Department of BIU and at BINA.
BINA Researchers Strike a Goldmine
Intrigued by the power of light, Prof. Dror Fixler, an expert in electro-optics and photonics, describes several theranostic methods developed over the past few decades. “At some point, medical researchers went for the gold, utilizing the high visibility and high-penetration depth of gold nanoparticles in the body”, he explains.
Galactic Empire - To go where no man has gone before
For nearly a decade, BINA’s fabrication facility has provided creative solutions and guidance to scientists from academia and industry in designing, crafting and experimenting with micro and nano-scale devices.
A Better Mood – It's All in the Mind
Can you boost your mood simply by actively engaging the power of thought? BIU's renowned cognitive neuroscientist, Prof. Moshe Bar, is exploring ways to improve the mood of people suffering from depression.
BINA Announces Major Infrastructure Purchase: The Orion Nanofab from Zeiss
BINA’s instrumentation facility recently celebrated a new arrival: the Orion Nanofab – an advanced tool for the fabrication, manipulation and imaging of materials at sub-ten nanometer range.
Report from the Zaban Laboratory: Perovskite and the Secret of Photovoltaic Success
Silicon-based solar panels are facing some serious competition. That’s because perovskite, is increasingly seen as the “go-to” material for the next generation of photovoltaic technologies. In the laboratory of Prof. Arie Zaban, researchers are hard at work, designing the next generation of perovskite-based solar cells.
BINA Partnering in Nanoscience E-Learning Initiative
BINA faculty members are in the process of preparing and filming two online courses. The courses are being created in the framework of “EduNano”, an international initiative established by the European Union under its TEMPUS framework for the modernization of higher education.
Blocking Bacterial Infection: How BINA-Based Research is Improving Hospital Care
As a former manager at Teva – one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical firms – Ronen Sarusi knows how to identify and develop technologies that are poised to improve human health.
GondaThon: BIU’sn Gonda Multidisciplinary Brain Research Center Hacks Neuroscience
Do you frequently find yourself falling asleep at the wheel? There could be an app that can analyze your brain waves in real time and alert you before you nod off.
Studying Corals in Space
The study of the behavior of corals and other marine organisms in the absence of gravity could pave the way to the development of new materials for industry and biomedicine.
Multidisciplinary Research: Our Formula for Success
Home to the largest Jewish studies faculty in the world, BIU is also pursuing cutting-edge scientific research, as seen in our Nanotechnology Institute, the Leslie and Susan Gonda (Goldschmied) Multidisciplinary Brain Research Center, and our SFaculty of Engineering.
Stress and the Single Cell: Apoptosis-Mediating Pathway May Lead to New Therapeutic Strategies
Mammalian cell biology is filled with dramatic stories of cellular “altruism” in which individual cells, irreparably damaged by stress, contribute to the greater health of an organism by initiating apoptosis, or programmed cell death. But what would drive a single-celled organism to initiate the apoptotic process?
BIU-WIS Material Research Society (MRS) Chapter Hosts First Annual Conference
A new partnership between graduate students from Bar-Ilan and the Weizmann Institute is helping to strengthen materials science collaboration – both within academia and with industry – from the bottom up.
Nanotech to the (Medical) Rescue: Anti-bacterial Coating for Textiles Poised to Save Lives
Prof. Aharon Gedanken pioneered the field of sonochemistry – a discipline in which chemicalreactions are accelerated through the application of ultrasonic sound waves.
