Researchers Generate Electricity and Hydrogen from Live Bacteria

American Technion Society

Using a family of photosynthetic bacteria that commonly live in lakes and seas, researchers at the Technion have developed a technology to generate electricity and hydrogen energy. The researchers believe their technology can serve as a promising source of clean, environment-friendly energy that will not emit pollutants during production or use (hydrogen fuel).

Nanotechnology for Plant Nutrition

American Technion Society

Technion researchers have found they can significantly increase agricultural yields, by using nanoscale delivery platforms that until now were used to transport drugs to specific targets in a patient's body. The technology increases the penetration rate of nutrients into the plant, from 1% to approximately 33%.

A New Way to Deliver Anticancer Drugs to Pediatric Tumors

American Technion Society

A newly developed nanosystem significantly improves the effectiveness of anti-cancer drugs and reduces the required dosage by about 90%. The system could offer a glimpse of developments to come in the treatment of pediatric cancers, which differ from adult cancers in aspects that include genetic characteristics, growth patterns and developmental pathways.

Israeli and American Researchers Have Successfully Curbed Mesothelioma in Model Animals

American Technion Society

A team led by researchers from the Technion and NYU Langone has successfully impeded the development of mesothelioma - a disease for which there is currently no effective treatment. Mesothelioma, a cancer that develops in the thin membrane that protects the internal organs of the chest and abdomen, is in most cases caused by exposure to asbestos.

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.

A Synthetic Cell That Produces Anti-Cancer Drugs Within a Tumor

American Technion Society

Researchers have successfully treated a cancerous tumor using a “nano-factory” – a synthetic cell that produces anti-cancer proteins within the tumor tissue. The synthetic cell could one day be an important part in the personalized medicine trend.
