Dr. Rina Tannenbaum received her BSc from Hebrew University in 1974, her MSc from the Weizmann Institute of Science in 1978, both in Chemistry, and her PhD (DSc) from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in 1982 in Chemical Engineering. She has authored a book, several book chapters and more than 150 journal publications in the fields of biomaterials, nanotechnology and nanomedicine, tissue engineering and drug delivery. Her research aims to derive a methodical, comprehensive understanding of the bonding-structure-function relationship in multi-component systems, leading to advanced biomedical, optical, and electronic devices and processes. She is also working to develop bio-based and bio-compatible functional materials derived from renewable resources. 

Research Interests
Soft condensed matter and complex fluids, bio-based functional materials, nanocomposites from renewable resources, biomaterials for bone implants and tissue engineering, bioadhesion and cell biomechanics, nanofluids, bio-nanostructures and hierarchical nanoplatforms for targeted drug delivery, self-assembly of nanostructures, interfacial and surface phenomena, hierarchical materials design, nucleation and growth of nanostructures, mechanical, electrical and thermal properties of nanocomposites, nanostructures for optoelectronic applications, catalysis.
