Our lab integrates a wide array of disciplines, including bioengineering, cell biology and materials science, towards development of peripheral organs modulation approaches. Our goal is to advance the fundamental understanding and therapeutic approaches for treating organ dysfunction and connecting it to the nervous system. We develop novel clinically translatable nanomaterials and nanocomposites for spatially and temporally precise on-demand control on organ function
Dr. Dekel Rosenfeld is a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering at Tel Aviv University. She got her BSc and PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in the field of tissue engineering. She then performed her postdoctoral research in the Bioelectronics Group in Massachusetts Institute of Technology where she developed the magneto-thermal stimulation approach of peripheral organs, using magnetic nanoparticles exposed to alternating magnetic fields.
We are looking for outstanding candidates at all levels (MSc, PhD and Postdocs), interested in multidisciplinary research, to join us! Contact us if you are eager for a fascinating research at the interface of nanomaterials, biomedicine and neuroscience!
