Cats Could Help in Development of Anti-HIV Drugs

American Technion Society

Technion researchers have discovered a mechanism which may serve the foundation for the resistance of FIV, the virus that causes “Feline AIDS.” Because of the parallels between FIV and HIV-1, the researchers say the discovery could also assist in the ongoing fight against AIDS.

Using Light and Gold for Targeted, Non-Invasive Drug Delivery

American Technion Society

Researchers have developed a highly-targeted and non-invasive drug-release method that combines a nanoscale gold particle-containing polymer coating and near-infrared light. The technology could also be used for other applications, including the sealing of internal and external injuries, and as biodegradable scaffolds for growing transplant organs.

What Do Your Eyes Say? Device Can Diagnose Diseases Based on Eyelid Motion

American Technion Society

Some say the eyes are a window to the soul. Now, thanks to researchers at the Technion, the eyes (or at least the motion of a person's eyelids) can also be used to diagnose eye diseases and neurologically expressed diseases, including Parkinson’s disease.
