Nano Taxis

The customizable NVs reported here enable next-generation functionalized theranostics aimed to promote neuroregeneration.


"Nano-Taxis" Shuttle Therapeutics to Neurons

Technion – Israel Institute of Technology Assistant Professor Assaf Zinger and Dr. Caroline Cvetkovic from the Center for Neuroregeneration at the Houston Methodist Research Institute have created a novel means of delivering medicine to neurons in a targeted manner.

Surgery Without a Single Incision

Israeli researchers combine a nanotechnology and a biological enzyme to create an enzymatic blade that could replace surgical scalpels.

Enzymatic Blade

 The application spares the pain associated with orthodontic surgeries and significantly reduces tissue recovery time.

Technion’s global relations

Technion - Israel Institute of Technology President Peretz Lavie and Dr. Assaf Zinger, an up-and-coming chemical engineering and nanotechnology researcher at the Israeli university, gave a joint presentation at a recent event in Bal Harbour.

The Story Behind the First YICRS

The purpose of the conference was to share and spread knowledge. We encouraged the participants to be involved, to ask questions during the lectures, and to mingle during the breaks.

Nanotechnology could redefine oral surgery

The team developed liposomal nanoparticles that contained collagenase and performed tests with them in rats. When the liposomes were placed under the gums, the collagenase diffused out of the particles and was activated by calcium naturally found in the mouth. 


Technology Replaces Scalpel

In an article published recently in ACS Nano,researchers at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology have outlined a nanotechnology that replaces the surgical scalpel with an "enzymatic blade."

Thanks to This Israeli Breakthrough, Orthodontia Could Be a Matter of Mere Months

People have been using knives to cut tissue for 4,000 years, says Assaf Zinger of the Technion - and thought of replacing the scalpel in gum surgery with enzymes.

בדרך לפוסט

כ-100 סטודנטים לתארים מתקדמים מאוניברסיטאות שונות השתתפו בכנס מדעי-הנדסי שנערך בטכניון במסגרת פעילות האגודה הישראלית למתן מבוקר של ביו-חומרים. המטרה: לייצר מפגש וחילופי ידע בין סטודנטים לתארים  מתקדמים העוסקים בתחום זה


חידוש בחדר הניתוח: ללא חיתוך, ללא כאב וללא פחד

חוקרים בפקולטה להנדסה כימית ע"ש וולפסון בטכניון פיתחו טכנולוגיה המחליפה את סכין המנתחים בחומרים ביולוגיים טבעיים.

Dr. Zinger and his team in Prof. Avi Schroeder Lab

הניתוח הביולוגי – חלום או מציאות?

האם נתעורר יום אחד לעולם בו הליך כירורגי יעבור ללא סכין ואזמל, ובמקומם יוצב צבא של אנזימים חותכי רקמה? אסף זינגר, בעבר יו”ר אס”ט וכיום מסטרנט בפקולטה להנדסה כימית, בראיון על המחקר שעשוי לשנות את החיים של כולנו.
