Prof. Gerald Steinberg: The True BDS Agenda
BIU Political Studies Prof. Gerald Steinberg, who has researched NGOs involvement in political processes, says that the agenda of many of the so-called human rights organizations like BDS is political. "They don't really want to change any particular policy; they want to undermine the legitimacy of Israel's existence, and to paint Israel as an apartheid state. This is dangerous because it could lead to Israel's political isolation."
Prof. Elda Weizman - A Master of Translation
Prof. Elda Weizman is the Head of the Interdisciplinary Studies Unit at Bar-Ilan’s Department of Translation and Interpreting Studies. Her research interests, anchored in socio-pragmatics, focus on the interpretation of indirectness in written and oral discourse, with special emphasis on irony and challenge in a cross-cultural perspective (English, French and Hebrew) in the written and electronic media.
Prof. Elie Holzer - Expert on Education and Jewish Thought

Prof. Ehud Weiss - Agricultural Discoveries
It was only recently that Prof. Ehud Weiss’ discovery of corn cleavers and darnel seeds (or hordeum vulgare), 11,000 years before the generally recognized as advent of organized cultivation, has revolutionized the archaeology world and is still making headlines in various publications all over the world.
Prof. Avi Pe’er - Harnessing the Quantum Nature of Light
In a world where even the most sensitive information can be accessed online, it is crucial to use a real time, coded, entirely secured communication method. Prof. Avi Pe’er, a laser physics expert in the BIU Institute for Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials (BINA), holds the world record in harnessing the quantum nature of light for ultra-precise measurement of length, time and frequency.
Dr. Lisa Maurice: Breaking the Surface of Classical Reception
Recently awarded a 1.5 million Euros grant by the European Research Council (ERC) for a joint research project on the reception of classical antiquity in children and young adults' contemporary culture, Dr. Maurice is part of an international group of academics from Poland, Australia, Cameroon and Great Britain participating in the project.
Dr. Amit Tzur: Finding the Humor in Good Science
Cell biologist and BINA faculty member Dr. Amit Tzur has never been shy about declaring his faith in the redemptive power of basic science, and he has a healthy sense of humor. An expert in cellular growth and proliferation, Tzur recently declared that his most recent research may help redeem mankind from “shame” generated by one of the most successful scientific endeavors of all time.
Prof. Orit Shefi - Understaning Neurons
As head of BIU’s Neuro-Engineering Laboratory, Prof. Orit Shefi recognizes the importance of an interdisciplinary approach. Her lab combines the fields of cell biology, molecular engineering, nanotechnology and computational biology to reveal insights into neural development.

Prof. Alexander Fish: Designing Tomorrow’s Microchip Today
With advancements in computing technology and expansion of mobile applications handling more and more information at faster rates, energy consumption has emerged as the primary concern for scientists working in the area of “very large scale integration” (VLSI) design. VLSI is the process of creating integrated circuits by combining millions of transistors into a single chip.
Dr. Noa Agmon: Making Robots Smart
The Golem of Prague, Frankenstein - human culture is replete with autonomous fictional characters calibrated to do the bidding of their creators. But, in today’s world, imbuing machines with advanced artificial intelligence is no fiction. Rather, it is a rapidly growing field called robotics, and Dr. Noa Agmon, a senior lecturer in the Department of Computer Science, stands among those at its forefront.
Prof. Moshe Bar, Director Leslie and Susan Gonda (Goldschmied) Multidisciplinary Brain Research Center
On July 25th, 1989, President George Bush signed a resolution declaring the 1990s to be “The Decade of the Brain,” signaling America’s commitment to neuroscience research.
Dr. Inbal Yahav-Shernberger: Crunching the Data to Save Lives
The gap between the number of kidney donors and patients who are waiting for a transplant is disheartening: in the U.S. alone, there’s an 8:1 ratio working against the people who are desperately in need of a life saving organ: 100,000 candidates vs. only 12,000 donors a year.
