Israeli researchers bring nanotechnologies to life

Abstract:
An Israeli team led by Dr. Dafna Benayahu of Tel Aviv University's Sackler Faculty of Medicine is working with 27 other research groups from throughout Europe to revolutionize medical technology. Their goal in the five-year project is to develop the nano-scale tools needed to create a 'tissue machine' - a device using stem cells that could produce, for the first time, a specific population of cells or tissue needed to heal a variety of ailments.

"Imagine that we could transplant into a patient's body new cartilage or bone to reverse spinal cord damage, or heart muscle tissue to repair a damaged heart," says Benayahu of the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology. "The research we're doing could turn that vision into reality."
