Congratulations to Omri Shelef who won the prestigious Adams Fellowship
Omri Shelef, PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Doron Shabat, at the Department of Organic Chemistry
Congratulations to Omri Shelef who won the Adams Fellowship of the Israel Academy Sciences and Humanities for outstanding doctoral students.
Omri's research aims to develop highly sensitive, cost-effective, and simple-to-operate chemiluminescent diagnostic tools to improve current disease diagnosis. Chemiluminescence (CL) is the emission of light as a result of a chemical reaction. Due to CL’s unique properties, it is considered one of the most powerful diagnostic tools for biosensing and bioimaging. Taking advantage of this remarkable sensitivity, utilizing fundamental synthetic organic chemistry, Omri develops chemiluminescent probes for detecting, identifying, and monitoring viral infections, bacterial infections, and various types of cancer.
The Adams Fellowships awarded by the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities are considered the most prestigious in Israel.
