    Cancer Drugs Could be Re-purposed to Fight Alzheimer's Disease

    As The Telegraph reports, ""a new generation of immunotherapy drugs for cancer may also help reverse Alzheimer's disease."" They're referencing the work of Prof. Michal Schwartz, who investigates the immune system's role in neurological diseases. And since the cancer drugs are already in use, they may be able to quickly reach Alzheimer's sufferers.

    A Trillion Computers in a Drop of Water

    Even before we have the quantum computers of tomorrow, we may have their successor: biological computers. Prof. Ehud Shapiro has created one that's so small that a trillion can fit in a single drop of water, and which has diagnosed cancer in a test tube. Someday the computer could circulate through the human body, diagnosing and treating disease.

    September is Prostate and Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

    September is both Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month – and fortunately, the Weizmann Institute of Science is conducting in-depth investigations into both of these too-familiar cancers. Scientists from across the disciplines – geneticists, biologists, plant scientists, computer scientists – are combining their strengths to develop improved prevention techniques, early and more precise diagnosis, and personalized, tailored treatments so that, one day soon, we can celebrate the end of prostate and ovarian cancers.

    October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

    October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and people everywhere are helping raise awareness and support: there are runs, walks, and, at the Weizmann Institute of Science, lots of lab work. Basic research is key to finding a cure, and our scientists have been working tirelessly to develop ways to detect breast cancer early, design more effective treatments, and better prevent it in the first place. Learn what Weizmann is doing about breast cancer – and how you can help.
