IIBR research and development concerning environmental sciences ranges from numerical modeling to laboratory and field experiments in the areas of meteorology and atmospheric contaminants. IIBR has developed capabilities that enable detection and identification of hazardous materials, weather and dispersion prediction, physical protection and evaluation of potential risks.
Prof. Shmuel Shapira, Director General of The Israel Institute for Biological research, with a special article on synthetic biology as a new and powerful tool for life sciences, engineering and computing and IIBR role in the new revolution.
“A research or biotechnological body that will not learn and utilize the potential of synthetic biology will soon become irrelevant"
More than 50 experienced PhD scientists from the Israel institute for biological research, are working tirelessly to produce a vaccine and antibody for the Novel Coronavirus. This is a world-leading group in aspect of knowledge, experience and infrastructure.
The initial stages of R&D are conducted in separate laboratories equipped with small fermentors and a variety of equipment to cover all aspects of analysis, cell culture, fermentation and product purification.
Integrative risk assessment requires thorough understanding of the multi-scale process that govern the emission and the dispersion of the hazardous material as well as the relevant physiological aspects of the toxicity. To deal with this complexity, IIBR researches have developed specialized models for each step.
