The Louis Family laboratory for targeted drug delivery & personalized medicine technologies 

ABOUT US

In our research group, we aim to improve patients' quality of life and treatment by developing innovative medical technologies. Specifically, we focus on targeted drug delivery systems to treat brain neurodegenerative diseases. Our nanotechnology is designed according to the loaded drug (proteins, gene delivery, and small molecules) and to the brain-targeting region. We also utilize our technology to treat various metastatic cancer types and inflammations and combine it with synthetic biology to develop artificial cells for therapeutic applications. Our lab is headed by Prof. Avi Schroeder, who has years of experience in nanotechnology and personalized medicine technologies.

Dr. Avi Schroeder has translational experience with the development of liposome-based clinical systems.  He is the author of scientific papers in the field of nanotechnology and medicine. Schroeder is the inventor on 19 patents, and recipient of 30 national and international innovation awards. Dr. Schroeder is a scientific-entrepreneur, starting 5 successful Technion spin-outs

OUR TEAM

Avi Schroeder
Avi Schroeder

Avi received all three degrees in Chemical Engineering from the Ben-Gurion University. His postdoctoral training at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2012). At MIT, Avi and colleagues developed nanoparticles that are capable of autonomously synthesizing proteins upon signal, thereby being a platform for on-site delivery of drugs and preventing damage to healthy organs. In our lab, Avi is building an expert team to work towards improved personalized and targeted medicine.
