For more than eight decades, the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology has been Israel’s primary technological university and the largest center of applied research. Technion has earned a worldwide reputation for its pioneering work in electronics, information technology, nano(bio)technology, materials engineering, water management, aerospace, etc. The LNBD group, headed by Prof. Hossam Haick, is ranked as one of the world’s premier research groups in the field of disease diagnosis by VOCs and nanomaterial-based artificially intelligent nanoarrays. Highly multi-disciplinary in nature, LNBD research combines knowledge from diverse fields, among them microelectronics, nanotechnology, microfluidics, machine learning, biochemistry, medicine, and genetics. Borrowing from these different disciplines, the laboratory develops novel solid-state and flexible devices/sensors, as well as electronic sensory nanoarrays for application in various areas. Healthcare diagnosis, consumer electronics, robotics and fitness, environmental monitoring and other fields. To realize its full potential, the laboratory has assembled a critical mass of partners from across the scientific, technical and commercial and public sectors, to develop intrinsically scientific and technologically-driven approaches.
Main tasks attributed in the A-PATCH project:
Technion is the coordinator of the A-PATCH project. Prof. Haick has a wide experience in coordinating international consortia, including the FP-7’s LCAOS, EuroNanoMed’s VOLGACORE and Horizon-2020’s SNIFFPHONE. In addition to coordination tasks, Technion will be leading WP2 and WP8.
