Our group is focused on the development of high throughput microfabricated platforms for the study of liver development, regeneration, and metabolism.

We are interested in Metabolic Programing: understanding how liver cells process information and make metabolic decisions. Our goal is to control patient’s metabolism using this approach. We look toward the development of the next generation of drugs for the treatment of metabolic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and atherosclerosis.

Located at the Edmond J. Safra campus of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem the MicroLiver Technologies Laboratory is affiliated with the Alexander Grass Center for Bioengineering and the Center for Nanotechnology. Our state-of-the-art laboratory is located at the Silberman Institute of Life Sciences
