Is it possible to ‘reprogram’ an organism, which consumes sugar and releases carbon dioxide, to consume carbon dioxide from the environment and produce the sugars it needs to build its body mass? That is just what a group of Weizmann Institute of Science researchers recently did.
The Israeli company Nano Textile has invented a technology that makes any fabric capable of killing bacteria. The technology prevents bacteria growth on natural and synthetic fibers, which helps prevent the spread of infections acquired in hospitals and reduces cross-contamination between medical staff and patients.
A day after she was born, Noa had a stroke and began convulsing. Now, two years later, a promising new treatment at the Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer, outside of Tel Aviv, could help her battle cerebral palsy (CP).

In another win for Israel against the anti-Israel boycott movement, an Israeli company will be supplying children's playgrounds across Europe with special padded flooring to protect children from getting hurt while playing.
At the Weizmann Institute of Science, researchers have managed to “pluck” a single photon – one particle of light – out of a pulse of light. The findings bear both fundamental and practical significance: single photons are likely to be the backbone of future quantum communication systems.
