Blending Art and Science at the Olsen Gallery, Woollahra

Professor Shulamit Levenberg Technion

Over 70 Technion Australia members and supporters recently enjoyed a private viewing of the latest paintings of renowned artist Peter Churcher at the beautiful Olsen Gallery, Woollahra.

The evening’s Guest of Honour was Professor Shulamit Levenberg, Dean of the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering at Technion Israel Institute of Technology who gave a fascinating talk about her ground-breaking work in stem cell and tissue engineering.

Professor Levenberg explained how her multi-disciplinary laboratory is undertaking pioneering research in the search for a cure for diabetes, finding ways to repair spinal damage, and create engineered tissue for acute and chronic wound repair. Professor Levenberg is currently in Australia meeting with researchers in Perth and Sydney to discuss a range of collaborative projects, including research she is undertaking with Professor Tony Weiss at the University of Sydney.

Techion Australia gratefully acknowledges the support of the Olsen Gallery and our sponsors, Gelatissimo and Logicca Chartered Accountants.
