Join us for an exclusive event with award-winning Technion Professor Hossam Haick, dean of undergraduate studies, founder of Na-Nose, a non-invasive disease diagnosis device, and the inventor of more than 50 patents.

Most recently, Prof. Haick and his team created a groundbreaking smart e-skin motion sensor which can be used in early disease diagnosis, alerting of motor system disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. Hear from Prof. Haick, a pioneer in the fields of artificial intelligence and nanotechnology, about this project and his other breakthrough research that is changing the way we diagnose disease.

Hossam Haick is the F.M.W. Academic Chair in the Wolfson Faculty of Chemical Engineering at the Technion, head of the Laboratory for Nanomaterial-based Devices, a faculty member of the Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute at the Technion, and the dean of undergraduate studies. He is an expert in the field of nanotechnology and a pioneer in the area of non-invasive disease diagnosis.

Prof. Haick development of the Nano Artificial Nose (Na-Nose), which uses nanosensors guided by artificial intelligence to detect the scent of more than 23 specific disease biomarkers in a person’s breath, including various cancers, kidney disease, and Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. In 2020, he began furthering the award-winning breathalyzer technology to pick up the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19, even in infected people who are asymptomatic.

Prof. Haick has registered more than 50 patents and launched multiple startups. He has developed a wearable health monitor system that can be attached to shirts, jewelry, and eyeglasses, allowing users to go about their days without interruption as the technology detects any signs of early disease. His artificially intelligent nanoarray technology has earned him prestigious grants including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Award, and he has been named to more than 80 top-rank listings worldwide, including the “MIT Technology Review” list of 35 leading young scientists in the world

Prof. Haick was born in Nazareth, earned his bachelor’s degree from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in 1998, and his Ph.D. from the Technion in 2002. He returned to the Technion in 2006 and was promoted to full professor in 2011.
