Asi did his B.Sc in chemistry in Tel-Aviv University and then worked from 2008 to 2012 as an analytical chemist in Teva Pharmaceuticals Ltd. In March 2012 Asi started his studies toward MSc in chemistry as the first student in the group and defended his MSc thesis in the summer of 2014. Part of  Asi's MSc results on PEG-dendrimer hybrids and their assembly into enzyme-respoonive micelles were published in JACS in early 2014 and made it to the front cover. Since fall of 2014, Asi continued in the group as a PhD student and his current research projects involve the design and synthesis of novel PEG-dendrimer hybrids of various architectures, study of their self assembly into stiumuli-responsive micelles and charaterization of their enzyamtic responses.

Liat Frid (PhD student)

 Liat started her undergraduate studies in Chemistry in TAU as a part of pre-military program and after she got her B. Sc. in 2003, she joined the Israeli army as a scientist. During her service, she took part in the development and production of crucial products in the elastomers division in Rafael industries. After 5 years in Rafael, Liat decided to return to the academy and joined the research group of Professor Ilan Marek at the Technion as a M. Sc. student. Liat graduated her M.Sc in the field of asymmetric organic synthesis in 2012 and later that year joined our group as a PhD Student. Her current research is focusing on the design, synthesis and charaterization of PEG-dendrimer hybrids for drug adn gene delivery.

Merav completed the chemistry/biology program in TAU and got her B.Sc. in 2013. She joined the group to work on controlling the rate of enzymatic disassembly of smart micelles and defended her MSc thesis in April 2016. Merav is now a PhD student in the group and her research focuses on the synthesis of multifunctional PEG-dendrimer hybrids for biomedical applications.

Gadi Slor (PhD student)

Gadi graduated from the chemistry/biology program in TAU and received his B.Sc. in 2015 (with distinction). In the last year of his undergraduate studies, Gadi did a research project in the group, working on covalent encapsulation of fluorescent dyes. He then joined the group in March 2015 as M.Sc. student and moved into the direct PhD program in early 2016. Gadi's current research is focusing on design and characterization of biocompatible hydrogels based on PEG-dendron hybrids.

Leigh Peles (MSc student)

Leigh graduated her B.Sc. in Chemistry-Biology in Tel-Aviv University, with Excellence, in 2015. In the 3rd year of her undergraduate studies, Leigh did a research project in the group. She worked on the synthesis, study and characterization of a PEG-dendron hybrid with a new structural design. In November 2015, Leigh joined the group as M.Sc. student. Her research focuses on designing degradable cross-linkers.
