This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Asi did his B.Sc in chemistry in Tel-Aviv University and then worked from 2008 to 2012 as an analytical chemist in Teva Pharmaceuticals Ltd. In March 2012 Asi started his studies toward MSc in chemistry as the first student in the group and defended his MSc thesis in the summer of 2014. Part of  Asi's MSc results on PEG-dendrimer hybrids and their assembly into enzyme-respoonive micelles were published in JACS in early 2014 and made it to the front cover. Since fall of 2014, Asi continued in the group as a PhD student and his current research projects involve the design and synthesis of novel PEG-dendrimer hybrids of various architectures, study of their self assembly into stiumuli-responsive micelles and charaterization of their enzyamtic responses.
