ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Dr. Nir Emuna entered the Technion after his military service to study aerospace engineering. Support from the Rosman Atidim Program allowed him to remain at the university and secured him an internship at Israel Aerospace Industries. During his graduate studies he switched gears, deciding to employ his engineering skills to biology. Emuna completed his Technion doctorate and postdoctoral studies in biomechanics and is now a postdoctoral fellow studying vascular mechanics at Yale University.
