“An aeronautical engineer, a chemist and a Fullbright scholar walk into a Urology lab…” No, this isn’t the classic set up for joke. It’s the background of one of the Technion’s most lauded young researchers, Moran Bercovici. Among numerous awards, Dr. Bercovici is the winner of the 2018 Hershel Rich Innovation Award, named for Houston philanthropist Hershel Rich.
Dr. Bercovici’s lab develops microfluidic technologies and devices that would accelerate disease detection and enable rapid, sensitive and low-cost diagnostics at the point-of-need (home, or doctor’s office). His field of “Lab-on-a-Chip” may revolutionize biochemical analysis and processing in a similar way that computer chips revolutionized data processing. Dr. Bercovici is currently on sabbatical at the University of Texas at Austin, advancing topics in 3D printing and adaptive optics.
Join us to learn about the magical process that takes place when traditional scientific disciplines interface, opening new approaches and ways of seeing the world and advancing science for the betterment of humanity.
