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.
Identity-Based Conflict Resolution Summer Program - Taught in English
This is the only international conflict resolution summer program in Israel taught entirely in English. The Program runs for just four weeks over the summer, offering internships in leading think-tanks and peace NGOs, and a wide range of activities such as seminars, workshops, simulations, guest lectures, two full-day academic study tours and various extracurricular activities.
BINA at the Cutting-Edge of Nano-Fabrication: FIB Unit Head Dr. Yafit Fleger Explains
When Dr. Yafit Fleger was pursuing her PhD in physics under the direction of BINA’s Prof. Michael Rosenbluh, she focused on plasmonics – an emerging field that aims to use light to transmit information within computer chips.
A Logical Breakthrough in Medicine: The Nano-Robots of Dr. Ido Bachelet
In 2012, Dr. Ido Bachelet and his Harvard research partner Dr. Shawn Douglas demonstrated how a nano-fabrication technique known as “DNA origami” can produce a structure capable of targeting specific tissues, and opening up to activate sequestered payloads in response to specific molecular signals.
Dr. Yaakov Tischler: Discovery at the Speed of Light
With light traveling orders of magnitude faster than electricity, it’s no wonder that photons – the discrete particles that carry radiant, electromagnetic energy – are being courted as the future of high speed data transfer.
BINA Masters Student Wins 2014 “Young Scientist Award” for Studies of Colloids
At what point do students of the exact sciences make the transition between absorbing existing knowledge, and discovering new knowledge they can share with others?
Shoshana Naiman: An “Up -and- Coming Woman Scientist” to Look Out For
Halfway through PhD studies in molecular biology, 26-year-old Shoshana Naiman is already making headlines.
Prof. Amir Herzberg: War Dot Com
Israel is a favorite target for cyber hackers, who choose to attack it on an hourly basis. Solutions for these attacks are being developed at Bar-Ilan University, considered one of the country’s leading cyber information centers.

Striking a Sympathetic Cord in the Music Therapy Program
Currently 30 graduate students (including six PhDs) are enrolled in the program, which includes musical and psychological courses. The ability to play piano and at least one other instrument is a unique admission requirement.
Stem Cells vs. Shingles: Prof. Ron Goldstein Demystifies the Source of Chronic Pain
It is well known that, if scratched, the rash associated with chicken pox can leave scars on the skin. Less well known is something else this disease can leave behind – a viral infection that, after many years, can reactivate in the form of Herpes Zoster, or shingles.
Prof. Bilha Fischer and the Molecular ID of Breast Cancer Tumors
Cancer patients want effective medical care, and they want it now. The initial diagnosis sometimes marks the beginning of a long process, in which doctors struggle to identify the best therapeutic approach. BIU Prof. Bilha Fischer is facing this problem.
When One Policy Doesn't Fit All: The 'Behavioral' Law of Prof. Yuval Feldman
The purpose of public policy is to set expectations for good behavior – and consequences for bad behavior – in a way that encourages individuals to follow the path of rational self-interest. But according to Prof. Yuval Feldman, of the BIU Faculty of Law, there’s a catch: while policy makers typically assume that rationality plays a central role in human decision-making, most people are neither that “smart” nor that “bad.”
The Science of Security: Returning Scientist Dr. Carmit Hazay
The digital revolution has changed the world for the better, by making it easier to share knowledge andresources. But connection carries a cost.
BIU Acquires World’s Most Advanced Archaeological Field Device
BIU archaeologists are now able to peer closer at microscopic samples of bygone civilizations, with their new handheld X-Ray Fluorescent Spectrometer (hXRF).
Dr. Dror Fixler: Scientist and Rabbi who Blends Both Worlds
An electro-optics photonics expert on the Faculty of Engineering, Dr. Dror Fixler is a man who sees God in the nanoparticles of life.
Prof. Aryeh Weiss: Better Bioengineering Education – From the Bottom Up
Judaism emphasizes education for self-reliance, whether it's learning a trade, or teaching children to swim. But in the teaching lab being developed by Prof. Aryeh Weiss, self-reliance is built from the bottom up, as students "get their feet wet" while burnishing the employability bona-fides. Under Weiss' tutelage, students will be challenged to move the state-of-the-art forward by constructing – and even improving – the instrumentation that makes scientific discovery possible.
