RESEARCH INSTITUTES: New Materials, 3D-PRINTING, Nanotech



Bar-Ilan Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials (BINA) 

Bar Ilan's Institute for Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials (BINA) is a dynamic and growing scientific community. At BINA, a renowned research staff – including a large number of young faculty members recruited from abroad – educate Israel's next generation of nanoscience professionals, while collaborating with academic and industrial experts on nano-based approaches to energy, magnetism, optics, clean tech and biomedicine.

BIRAD – Bar Ilan University Research and Development Company Ltd. (BIRAD), and the biodesign lab headed by Dr. Ido Bachelet at Bar Ilan University, announced that BIRAD has entered into an evaluation agreement with Pfizer Inc. This agreement is focused on gaining a better understanding into DNA nanorobots as potential carriers of different proteins for possible new treatments. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

MIT Self-Assembly Lab

A cross-disciplinary research lab at MIT inventing self-assembly and programmable material technologies aimed at reimagining construction, manufacturing, product assembly and performance. Self-Assembly is a process by which disordered parts build an ordered structure through local interaction. We have demonstrated that this phenomenon is scale-independent and can be utilized for self-constructing and manufacturing systems at nearly every scale
