New warning sign for breast cancer

A team led by Tel Aviv University identified a new indicator of metastatic breast cancer, laying the groundwork for preventive treatment that could save millions of lives. Metastatic breast cancer, also known as Stage 4 breast cancer, occurs when cancer has spread, or “metastasized,” to other parts of the body. Mortality from breast cancer is… Read More

New Steinhardt Museum exhibition focuses on climate change

In recent years the climate crisis has evolved from a scientific term to a tangible reality. The average temperature measured on the earth’s surface is rising, more and more temperature records are being broken in many places around the world, and we’ve experienced extreme weather events, ecological destruction and a negative impact on biodiversity. About… Read More

Study from TAU identifies differing levels of COVID-19 antibodies in men and women

A joint study conducted by researchers from Tel Aviv University (TAU) and the Shamir Medical Center (Asaf Harofe) indicates that the level of COVID-19 antibodies in the human blood stream differs according to age groups, gender, symptoms, and time elapsed since vaccination. The research examined the level of antibodies in over 26,000 blood samples taken… Read More

TAU discovery sheds new light on elusive workings of ALS

Researchers from Tel Aviv University (TAU) have identified a previously unknown intracellular process in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) that may serve as a basis for the development of new treatments for the fatal neurodegenerative disease. “Our discovery provides new encouragement for developing ALS treatments,” says the study’s lead researcher, Professor Eran Perlson of the Department… Read More

New nanotech from TAU produces “healthy” electric current from the human body itself

A new nanotechnology development from an international research team led by Tel Aviv University researchers will make it possible to generate electric currents and voltage within the human body itself through the activation of various organs using mechanical force. The development involves a new and very strong biological material, similar to collagen, which is non-toxic… Read More

Excavation reveals previously unknown early human species group

Researchers from Tel Aviv University (TAU) and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem have identified a new type of early human group at the Nesher Ramla excavation site, dated to 140,000 to 120,000 years ago. According to the researchers, the morphology of the Nesher Ramla group shares features with both Neanderthals (especially the teeth and jaws)… Read More

New TAU method delivers therapeutic RNAs exclusively to cancer cells

Researchers at Tel Aviv University have created a new method of transporting RNA-based drugs to a subpopulation of immune cells involved in the inflammation process, and target disease-inflamed cells without causing damage to healthy cells that surround them. The new technology may revolutionize the treatment of cancer and a wide range of diseases and medical… Read More
