A three-day symposium, "Infectious Disease Symposium: Innovative Approaches to Diagnostics and Research", was held at the Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials of Bar Ilan University on September 5-7th. The National Scientific Committee for the conference was comprised of four distinguished professors, including Prof. Amos Danielli from the Faculty of Engineering & the Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials at Bar Ilan University, Prof. Avi Peretz from Tzafon Medical Center & Azrieli Faculty of Medicine at Bar Ilan University, Prof. Yonat Shemer from Ben Gurion University of the Negev, and Prof. Eli Schwartz from Sheba Medical Center & Tel Aviv University.
Dozens of laboratory directors, virologists, Internal medicine physicians, infectious
diseases experts, clinical chemists, laboratory technologists, and biomedical engineers, participated in the conference and learned about early diagnosis and treatment of intrauterine infections, flaviviruses diagnosis, and challenges in the diagnosis of bacterial and parasitic infections, as well as detecting the emergence of the next disease X. Among the various presentations, Prof. Amos Danielli has given a talk about "Rapid and highly sensitive diagnosis of Zika, dengue, and West Nile viruses infection using Magnetic Modulation Biosensing technology". Also, as part of the program, the conference attendees were privileged to hear a lecture by our lab Ph.D. graduate, Dr. Michael Margulis, on "Saliva-based diagnosis of respiratory diseases".
As part of the Israeli-Vietnam scientific cooperation, our Vietnamese partners, Prof. Nguyen Vu Trung (MD. Ph.D.), the director of Pasteur Institute in Ho Chi Minh City, and Dr. Le Thi Hoi from Hanoi Medical University, visited at the Optical Imaging and Biosensing laboratory. Prof. Amos Danielii presented and discussed the medical research done in the lab with our distinguished guests.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.firstname.lastname@example.org
