Yissum Announces New Platform for 3D Printing of Personalized Medicine

 

Technology to be presented at the 3D Printing and Beyond Conference at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem on November 7, 2018

Yissum, the Technology Transfer Company of The Hebrew University announced a novel technology for the 3D printing of drug capsules. The technology is based on custom-printed 3D hydrogels with delayed release characteristics. The technology will be presented at the 2nd annual conference, 3d Printing and Beyond, November 7, 2018, at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

Professor Shlomo Magdassi, head of the Hebrew University’s 3D and Functional Printing Center, as well as a member of the Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and Institute of Chemistry, in collaboration with Dr. Ofra Benny, researcher at Hebrew University’s Institute for Drug Research, developed the cutting edge drug fabrication technology which enables a complex design of drug delivery systems, currently unavailable in conventional pharmaceutical manufacturing techniques. This approach enables printing customized and personalized medications out of hydrogel objects which can expand, change shape, and activate on a delayed schedule.

Besides the ability to achieve complex structures and release profiles of drugs, this novel platform has the ability to personalize prescription medicines, allowing for doctors to tailor accurately the exposure and dosage levels for individual patients.

“Professor Magdassi and Dr. Benny’s research is an excellent example of the kind of interdisciplinary transformational inventions that originate from the Hebrew University. This technology is bringing us closer to a future in which the medical field can offer personalized, patient-centered care,” said Dr. Yaron Daniely, CEO and President of Yissum.

3D printed hydrogels are just one of many innovations that will be presented at the 2nd annual conference, 3D Printing and Beyond, which brings to Jerusalem a wide range of global industry leaders and researchers to explore advances in pharmaceuticals, electronics, and defense related technologies, along with 3D printed food, automotive parts and more.

3D Printing and Beyond is organized by Prof. Shlomo Magdassi and Dr. Michael Layani of the 3D and Functional Printing Center at the Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The conference is sponsored by the Jerusalem Development Authority, Yissum, the Technology Transfer Company of The Hebrew University and The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
