Nano medicine

The applicability of the new technology is demonstrated in the contexts of local cell transplantation, drug transport for controlled local release over time and 3D bioprinting. The mechanical properties of the scaffolds can be adjusted according to the target tissue and the rate
In the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering at the Technion, an automatic system was developed to create a "nanometric package" for sending drugs to cancer centers in the body
Researchers have recently succeeded in developing innovative bio-nanoparticles derived from corn designed to tune into and destroy cancer cells, thanks to the body's own immune system
The system developed by the Technion researchers is based on smart micro-needles, which are fixed inside a sticker (plaster) that adheres to the skin. The system continuously monitors the patient's medical condition and sends the data to him and his doctor
