New hope for pediatric burn scars using Israeli lasers
By Abigail Klein Leichman for Israel21c
Youngest burn victims benefit from Israel’s pioneering expertise in CO2 lasers at Sheba Medical Center’s new I-PEARLS Center of Excellence.
Mira from Jerusalem was severely burned in a bus fire when she was seven. But despite the loss of an eye, an arm, both ears and most of one foot, six years later Mira is not only alive but smiling.
Recently she became the first patient to be treated in the I-PEARLS (Israel Pediatric Aesthetic and Reconstructive Laser Surgery) Center of Excellence at Sheba Medical Center under the direction of world-renowned burn specialists Josef Haik and Arie Orenstein.

Israeli scientists are hard at work on just such contraptions. Here’s a look at seven of the most fascinating designs that can help with everything from exploring our insides to cleaning up the mess we make on the planet.

The new research complex will focus on all stages of development, from basic chemical research to the development of active processes and materials, and to a final product for farmers.
ADAMA, the world’s leading generic crop protection company, inaugurated its multi-million dollar advanced global research and development center on Tuesday in the southern industrial zone of Ne’ot Hovav.
The Tel Aviv-headquartered company, acquired by Beijing-based chemical company ChemChina in 2017, will initially welcome more than 100 researchers and chemists to its new agricultural research hub, and is expected to expand in the future.
