Ben M. Maoz
I am a faculty member in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, and Sagol School of Neuroscience at Tel Aviv University. I accomplished my Ph.D in Chemistry in Tel Aviv University under the supervision of Prof. Gil Markovich. I returned to Israel after completing his post-doctoral fellowship at the Wyss Institute at Harvard University, under the supervision of Prof. Don Ingber and Prof. Kit Parker. our current research focuses on developing new methods for studying human physiology, focusing on the brain. These new tools, known as Organs-on-a-Chip, provide a conceptually new way of studying human physiology by which the organ functionality is mimicked in a microfluidic chip by using human cells. This concept enables us to tackle fundamental questions on human physiology without the need to work with human beings. In our lab, we develop and implement this methodology in order to study complex human systems.
