Tiffany Abitbol

Tiffany Abitbol completed her PhD in Materials Chemistry at McGill University in
Canada. She is currently pursuing her postdoctoral research at
the Faculty of Agriculture of the Hebrew University in Rehovot. Her
research bridges biology, nanotechnology, materials chemistry and
engineering, aiming to develop new and relevant materials which
exhibit improved properties due to the specific combination of
bio-derived nanoparticles and functional proteins. Tiffany hopes
to impact the development of non-petroleum based materials
having specific functionality dictated by the interplay between
protein and nanoparticle components, with potential applications
in biomedicine and materials engineering.
