In 2014 the elite Chinese University, Tsinghua teamed with Tel Aviv University to launch XIN Center, a joint venture aiming to power innovation via ties between top Chinese and Israeli researchers in the fields of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.


XIN (New in Chinese) Center focuses on collaborative, high-impact applied research, promoting over a dozen applied research programs of TAU and THU.


A unique mentoring system is applied, whereby leading scientists, industrialists and business figures accompany projects throughout all stages of research, combining internal and external resources from both Israel and China.


Emphasis is placed on projects conducted jointly by researchers from both universities. Current examples include: diagnostics and prognosis of cancer and other diseases using the CRISPR system (Dr. Yuval Ebenstein, Prof. Ting Zhu); and small molecules for treating Parkinson’s disease (Prof. Danny Segal & Prof. Yan-Mei Li).


Dozens PhD students and researchers from both universities have already participated in exchange visits facilitating research mainly in the field of nanotechnology.


XIN Center also supports Scientific school, seminars as well as research students and researchers exchange between the Universities.
