Short Bio

Dr. Korin earned his bachelor’s degree from Ben Gurion University of the Negev, his master’s and Ph.D. at the Technion, and conducted postdoctoral research at Harvard University. He joined the Technion faculty in 2015, where his Cardiovascular NanoMed Engineering lab integrates the principles of fluid dynamics, tissue biomechanics, vascular physiology, and biomaterials science into its multidisciplinary research.
Dr. Korin won for developing technology to treat brain aneurysms, weakened areas in a blood vessel of the brain that can rupture and cause brain damage or death. In the past, aneurysms were treated by opening the skull. Today, surgeons use a less invasive method involving stents or coils that block the aneurysm, but the procedure itself can cause the aneurysm to rupture.

In his grant-winning research proposal, VasoSurfer, Dr. Korin offers a new strategy that uses liquid with high surface tension to “surf” in blood vessels. The method first isolates the blood vessel’s problematic area to protect it without stopping blood flow. Then, the aneurysm is filled with a biological adhesive that prevents it from rupturing, and eventually leads to complete healing.
