The Global Connection - Episode #37: Life (and Disease) in a TAU Lab

At the Maoz Lab, Tel Aviv University (TAU) researchers are revolutionizing how diseases and trial drugs can be studied, using human tissues and recreating organs via “organ-on-a-chip” technologies.


This episode of The Global Connection shares the experience of two international researchers in that lab: MSc student Emma Glickman and PhD candidate Neta Fibeesh. Along with Prof. Ben Maoz, they discuss what it’s like to research at TAU and how they’re using stem cells and simulating mini-organs to advance understanding of diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
