Technion researchers have made immeasurable contributions to benefit the world.
Brain and spine surgeries are high-risk procedures that could have dire consequences if the surgeon is even one millimeter off target. Professor Moshe Shoham developed a robotic guidance system that helps perform these surgeries with pinpoint accuracy. The company he founded, Mazor Robotics, has done more than 7,000 successful surgeries and 50,000 implants.
And while battling cancer, Biotechnology and Food Engineering Professor Ester Segal spent endless days hooked up to IVs. We know how to make silicon chips for smartphones, she thought, so why not bring that high-tech know-how to cancer treatment? Working with medical researchers and clinicians in the Technion Integrated Cancer Center, she is developing nano-silicon carriers that could be ingested, injected or implanted to deliver chemotherapy over a period of weeks or months, doing away with IV drips, allowing patients to receive treatment while going about their daily lives.
These are just some of the immeasurable contributions that Technion researchers have made to benefit the world. To learn more about supporting the Technion, visit us or contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212.407.6300.
