About Us

ProFuse Technology is the muscle cultivation expert, developing products for muscle tissue growth for the cultivated meat and the life sciences sectors. Our technology focus encompasses the development of cell lines, media supplements, cultivation methods and AI-based analysis.

Our products aim not only to boost yield, expedite production cycles and enable growth of mature muscle tissue, but also to significantly reduce overall production costs. We actively engage in collaborations with prominent cultivated meat and life sciences companies, seamlessly integrating our technology into their production processes and research activity. 

The Team

The company’s technology relies on 6 years of research conducted at the Weizmann Institute of Science, led by Professor Eldad Tzahor, a world-known expert in developmental biology and cardiac regeneration, Dr. Ori Avinoam, who specializes in cell fusion and membrane dynamics, and Dr. Tamar Eigler-Hirsh, an expert in muscle stem cell biology.

Guy Nevo Michrowski

Co-Founder and CEO

A great supporter of sustainability and veganism, and a seasoned entrepreneur with over 20 years of experience in start-ups growth and management in the fields of energy and consumer electronics. Guy grew startups from inception to exit as well as held management positions in global companies. He earned his B.Sc in International Business Management, Summa Cum Lauda.

Dr. Tamar Eigler-Hirsh

Co-Founder and CTO

Dr. Eigler-Hirsh characterized the molecular signaling pathway which is the basis of ProFuse Technology. She completed her doctoral degree at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, and postdoctoral training under the mentorship of Prof. Eldad Tzahor at the Weizmann Institute of Science (WIS). Her research focuses on muscle development and regeneration, and the regulation of muscle progenitor cell differentiation and fusion.

Prof. Eldad Tzahor

Scientific Founder

Professor Tzahor is considered a world leader in the fields of myogenesis and cardiac development and regeneration. He joined the faculty of WIS in 2003 and serves as the Head of the Molecular Cell Biology Department. The Tzahor laboratory focuses on the development of novel therapeutic approaches by understanding the signaling mechanisms that regulate skeletal and cardiac muscle development and regeneration.

Dr. Ori Avinoam

Scientific Founder

Ori brings to ProFuse extensive background in processes of cell-to-cell fusion as well as an expertise in multi-modal imaging techniques. He joined the faculty of the WIS in 2017. In his laboratory, he aims to cultivate a thorough understanding of membrane fusion and internalization processes, focusing on their contribution to the structure and function of muscles.

Dr. Meital Nuriel-Ohayon

VP of R&D

Joined ProFuse at 2021, Dr. Nuriel-Ohayon has over 18 years of experience in biological research, with technological expertise in cell culture and biochemical, immunological, and molecular biology techniques. She completed her Ph.D. in Medical Science at Bar-Ilan University, focusing on host-microbiota interactions under the mentorship of Prof. Omry Koren. Her postdoctoral studies at Bar-Ilan University explored the microbiome’s role in gestational diabetes mellitus. Later, as a lab manager and research associate in Dr. Shai Bel’s lab, she investigated the specialization of intestinal cells to understand how the intestine forms a barrier and why this barrier breaks down in inflammatory bowel diseases.

Dr. Hadar Sarig

VP of Business Development, Life-Sciences

With over 15 years of international academic and industry experience, Dr. Sarig possesses a deep understanding of life sciences and tissue engineering. Motivated by a desire to innovate, she leads ProFuse’s efforts to explore new opportunities, partnerships, and breakthroughs in the field of muscle cultivation. Dr. Sarig holds a Ph.D. in Biotechnology & Food Engineering (Technion, Israel) and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in Material Science Engineering (NTU, Singapore).

Scientific Advisory Board

Prof. Shulamit Levenberg

Scientific Advisory Board

Professor Levenberg is a professor at the Biomedical Engineering Department at the Technion – Institute of Technology in Israel. Her discoveries relating to vascularization of stem cell-derived tissue constructs have been discussed in leading journals such as Nature-Biotechnology and PNAS, and have had significant impact on the scientific community. Professor Levenberg was selected by “Scientific American” as one of the world’s 50 leading scientists for her work in tissue engineering.
