Shulamit Levenberg, PhD

August 1, 2023

Faculty of Biomedical Engineering
Technion - Israel Institute of Technology


Primary Research:

The Levenberg Lab specializes in the field of stem cell-based tissue engineering. Our focus is on recreating complex tissues in vitro for purposes such as regenerative medicine, disease modeling, and drug discovery. We have expertise in engineering 3D vascularized composite tissues using cutting-edge 3D bioprinting and scaffold-based approaches. By utilizing defined biomaterials and mimicking in vivo settings with mechanical signals, we investigate the mechanisms behind in vitro vascularization and develop multi-scale vasculature in engineered tissues. In addition, our research extends to exosome-mediated spinal cord regeneration and the emerging field of cultivated meat.
