The next innovation that will feed you: Introducing the future of agriculture
Ever notice how a spilled drop of coffee spreads into a ring stain on your shirt? The particle-filled liquid flows outward from the drop, leaving the particles on the rim of the ring as the liquid evaporates. This phenomenon posed big problems for printers. How do you keep drops of ink in place? Then Hebrew University Prof. Shlomo Magdassi realized it could actually provide a way to move the industry toward a fantastic future in functional printing.
Avi Hasson, Chief Scientist of Israel’s Ministry of Economy, said at the award ceremony: “Qlight Nanotech encompasses a winning combination of outstanding technology originating from the Hebrew University together with a leading international partner".
Yissum displays some of the most exciting advances at NanoIsrael 2014 in Tel Aviv, an event that drew thousands from 30 countries.
Mobileye is planning an IPO at a colossal company valuation of $2.5-3 billion, according to financial news website Calcalist. If that is the case, Mobileye, which specializes in the development of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) for motor-vehicles, will offer up the largest ever IPO made by an Israeli company on NASDAQ.

Professor emeritus Marta Weinstock-Rosin at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s pharmacology department has spent years studying drug treatments for degenerative diseases of the central nervous system.
Her research there ranged from how salt raises blood pressure to developing drugs for Alzheimer’s, including rivastigmine (Exelon).
Yissum presents the pipeline of the future: This is where the Start Up Nation begins.
The promising technology is based on years of research at the Hebrew Univresity's Faculty of Agriculture, and was licensed to the company by Yissum.

Study was published in the prestigious Nature Communications Journal
The Hebrew University’s technology transfer company, Yissum, has applied for a patent for the treatment of some forms of depression by several specific microglia-stimulating drugs
The Jerusalem-based start-up said that half of the patients have already been enrolled in the Phase II clinical trial that will include 80 patients with newly diagnosed metastatic pancreatic cancer and have have yet to start chemotherapy. The trial includes two treatment groups of 40 subjects each. The control group is allocated to standard chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer, and the treatment group will receive TL-118 in addition to standard-of-care chemotherapy.
Yissum Research Development Company, the technology transfer arm of the Hebrew University, registered a patent for the discovery and is seeking commercial partners to help develop effective therapies against invasive streptococcus infections.
A home-based learning program frm the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is helping families in Indigenous and disadvantaged communities better prepare their children for their first years of education.
Researchers at the Hebrew university of Jerusalem have created a molecule that could potentially lower diabetic patients' higher risk of developing dementia or Alzheimer's disease.
Israel’s beloved singer Arik Einstein died on November 26, at age 74, from a ruptured aortic aneurysm. This condition is an abnormal ballooning of the body’s main artery that can lead to fatal internal bleeding.
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is the 13th leading cause of death in most Western countries, and more than 200,000 new cases are diagnosed annually in the US alone.
If aneurysms could be treated early to prevent worsening, the incidence of rupture and death would fall dramatically. And that is the aim of a patented technology from the Hebrew University.
Prof. Raz Yirmiya, director of the Hebrew University’s Psychoneuroimmunology Laboratory, and his doctoral student Tirzah Kreisel, together with colleagues in Yirmiya’s lab and at the University of Colorado, showed that changes in one type of non-neuronal brain cells – microglia – play a role in the development of depression following chronic exposure to stress.
Encouraged by the findings, the Hebrew University’s technology transfer company, Yissum, has applied for a patent for the treatment of some forms of depression by several specific microglia-stimulating drugs.
