On the last week of April, Prof. Amos Danielli visited in the University of Houston. During his visit, Prof. Danielli met with Prof. Wei-Chuan Shih from the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering and with Prof. Ran An from the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering.
Prof. Wei-Chuan's research focuses on the development of new technology for biomedicine and portable chem/biosensing, surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS), optical imaging, microscopy & spectroscopy, single nanoparticle (exosome, virus) analysis, disease diagnosis by virtual biopsy, N/MEMS/microfluidics, lab-on-a-chip, smartphone microscopy and portable chemical/biological sensor.
Prof. Ran An's research focuses on the development, clinical translation, and potential commercialization of:
1. Electrokinetic- and electrochemical-driven microfluidic biosensors for rapid and affordable point-of-care disease diagnostics and monitoring.
2. Organ-on-chip functional assays to facilitate a fundamental understanding of disease pathophysiology, drug testing, and personalized healthcare, with a specific interest in human microcirculatory health.
Six months after Prof. Danielli's visit in Prof. Tsuyoshi Minami's Lab at the Institute of Industrial Science in the University of Tokyo, Prof. Minami repaid us with a visit in our lab at the Faculty of Engineering in Bar-Ilan University, Israel. Prof. Minami also gave a talk on "Toward the realization of chemical sensors that can be used by anyone, anywhere".Read more
Prof. Amos Danielli, Dr. Shira Roth, and Dr. Michael Margulis, have presented our lab recent work at the Neurons and Proteins and Viruses sessions of BIOS conference in SPIE (The International Society for Optics and Photonics) Photonics West 2023 convention, San Francisco, United States. Also, our principal investigator, Prof. Amos Danielli, has served as a joint chairman of the BIOS conference.Read more
Prof. Danielli specializes in Electro-optics and Bio-photonics. After completing his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in the field of optical communication at Tel Aviv University, he worked in industry for eight years and then return to the Academy. During his studies for P.hD, he developed a new technology to rapidly detect fluorescent-labeled probes at very low concentrations in homogenous solutions and continued developing it during his post-doctoral studies in Washington University, St. Louis.
In 2014, he has returned to Israel and joined the faculty of Engineering at Bar Ilan University.
During his stay in the US, he founded a company that commercializes this technology, and established connections with key figures in the fields of medical laboratory and diagnostics, and especially among troponin and heart attack specialists.
We are always happy to hear from postdocs and students at all levels (BSc., MSc. and PhD.) with various backgrounds (mathematics, engineering, physics, biology) who are interested by the kind of research we are doing. send an email to Amos.email@example.com
