Why I'm a JPAL

Innovation and new discoveries have always been exciting for me, I am as fascinated with it today as in the first day working in the university laboratory. JLABS is the interaction point between J&J and the frontier of science, an ideal place to be in for supporting the introduction of new technologies to patients and helping to shape the future of medicine.


Experience includes development in the field of biologics and medical device for indication such as hemostasis, sealing of surgical leaks and adhesion prevention. I have worked with global strategic marketing on shaping our development roadmap and define our future directions. I hold a Ph.D. in biochemistry from the Hebrew university in Jerusalem. In my current role I lead the Omrix R&D (an Ethicon Biosurgery company) and external innovation for Ethicon Biosurgery.
