Diabetes research earns 2015 Kaye Innovation Award for Hebrew University's Ofer Mandelboim
Hebrew University of Jerusalem scientist Professor Ofer Mandelboim has won the 2015 Kaye Innovation Award for his research showing that NKp46 receptors on Natural Killer cells play a critical role in the development of type 1 diabetes. In studies with mice, inhibiting the NKp46 receptor almost entirely prevented the development of diabetes. This groundbreaking research is the basis for BioLineRx's BL-9020, a monoclonal antibody that targets the Natural Killer receptor NKp46.
