Nano: Great Minds Think Tiny

TAU’s nanoscientists are using nature's basic building blocks to produce new materials, devices and machines that could dramatically advance areas such as human health, the environment and national security

Since its establishment in 2000, TAU's Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Center has become the leading research center in the field in Israel, with 66 talented nano researchers from the range of medical and hard sciences. Their achievements include 1,000 scientific papers, 60 patents, 16 startups and commercial licensing agreements, and discoveries that range from nanosensors that can "sniff out" bombs to next-generation drugs for cancer, diabetes and heart disease. The University also works closely on nano projects with 35 major companies, including HP, Johnson & Johnson, Merz Pharma and RAFAEL.
