Assistant Professor of Synthetic Biology and Bioelectronics

Dr Daniel leads the Synthetic Biology and Bioelectronics group at Technion. He received the B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from Israel Institute of Technology in 2001, and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Tel-Aviv University in 2010. From 2000 to 2006 Ramez was with Tower Semiconductor as a device/design engineer, and was a post-doctoral research fellow at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) from 2010-2014. During his work in MIT, Ramez has pioneered a new approach to design biological circuits called “analog genetic circuits”. Ramez won several awards and prizes (Leader in Science and Technology young academic chair, MAOF Fellowship for new faculty members, VATAT Fellowship for Ph.D. Study, Cum Laude for M.Sc. Study). His current research is focused on synthetic computation in living cells, bioelectronics and bioinspired technology for biomedical and biotechnology applications.
