    Matching Proteins, Defeating Disease

    Dr. Sarel Fleishman studies how proteins ""mate,"" or fit together – and, in fact, created his own method that lets scientists change the surface of proteins so that they mate with other proteins of the researcher's choice. This technique could lead to new treatments aimed at viruses, bacteria, and cancer.

    Making Personalized Medicine a Reality

    Dr. Berta Strulovici, director of the Weizmann Institute's Nancy and Stephen Grand Israel National Center for Personalized Medicine, explains how personalized, or ""precision,"" medicine uses information about a person's genes, proteins, and environment to prevent, diagnose, and treat patients – a ""proactive rather than reactive"" approach.

    Heart Cells Regenerated in Mice

    In a heart research breakthrough, Weizmann's Prof. Eldad Tzahor and a team of researchers have induced heart cells in mice to revert to an earlier state when they can be renewed; typically, the heart is unable to heal itself. This important work could lead to powerful new treatments for heart disease.
