The Lorry I. Lokey Interdisciplinary Center for Life Sciences and Engineering provides a unique opportunity to bring together the worlds of medicine, life science, and engineering. Where else but at the Technion, a leader in high tech and innovation in fields of engineering and medicine, can such a center be created? Nobel Prize laureate Aaron Ciechanover had a vision of this Center and it was adopted, with enthusiasm, by Lorry I. Lokey, a long time supporter of research and educational institutions.
The Lokey Center is bringing together diverse yet related fields of bioinformatics, proteomics, tissue regeneration and stem cell biology, genomics, imaging, bio-processing engineering, and information processing. The Center is providing state of the art equipment to a cadre of outstanding researchers, allowing inter-disciplinary exchange between scientists with varied areas of expertise. The Center is providing an environment of excellence to foster creative research in life sciences, with the complementary skills in engineering and technology. It will offer these scientists tools to help solve problems associated with basic life sciences and biomedical engineering, create new diagnostic techniques in medicine, and extend the frontiers of knowledge in science and technology.
