Advanced, long term disinfectant polymers

Researcher: Dr. Shady Farah

Surfaces contaminated with viruses such as the Corona virus may infect people touching them. On non-porous surfaces, viable virus can be detected for days to weeks. Current disinfectant are effective in cleaning surfaces, but not keeping it disinfected. Self-disinfecting sprayable...

Capture of Corona virus in shared spaces

Researcher: Prof. Ofer Manor

Filtration systems are using as open structure as possible to allow flow to be as free as possible. Sometimes, the openings are too wide for small particles including bio-based particles and other pollutants such as dust, particles originating from combustion...

Protection from infection like a sun-screen from sun-damage

Researcher: Prof. Roee Amit

RNP granules are naturally occurring gel-like dense RNA-protein complexes. Here we devised a method to engineered synthetic RNP granules de novo which can be used for a variety of applications. The chief utility of the method is to place a...
