laboratory for targeted drug delivery & personalized medicine technologies 

ABOUT US

Our research group is aimed at improving patients’ quality of life and bettering their treatment by developing innovative medical technologies. Specifically, we focus on targeting metastatic cancer with nanotechnology, and on constructing miniature medical devices that couple diagnosis to therapy (theranostic devices). Our lab is headed by Dr Avi Schroeder, who has years of experience in nanotechnology and personalized medicine.

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 14 patents, and recipient of 20 national and international innovation awards. Dr. Schroeder is a scientific-entrepreneur, starting 5 successful Technion spin-outs.

Jeny Shklover

Jeny received BA, MSc and PhD from the Technion. During her PhD obtained under the supervision of Dr. Estee Kurant, she focused on processes involved in dead cells removal at the embryonic central nervous system. In her postdoc at Griffiths lab in UCDAVIS she investigated different aspects of endothelial cells recellularization of xenogeneic scaffolds and development of a novel antigen removal method. Jeny joined Schroeder group in 2019 and serves as lab manager and senior scientist.
