Prof.  Sarah Ferber is the head of the Endocrine Research Unit at the Sheba Medical Center.

 

Prof. Sarah Ferber is one of the most recognized world leaders in cell replacement therapy for diabetes.

 

She studied biochemistry at the Technion under the supervision of Professor Avram Hershko and Professor Aharon Ciechanover, winners of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2004. She completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Joslin Diabetes Lab at Harvard Medical School.

 

Prof. Ferber's breakthrough discovery suggested that humans carry their own 'stem-cells' throughout adulthood, thus obviating the need for embryonic stem cells for generating an organ in need.

 

Most of the research was conducted in Prof. Ferber's lab, in the Endocrine Research Lab at theSheba Medical Center, and currently employs 11 scientists.

 

Prof. Sarah Ferber received TEVA, LINDNER, RUBIN and WOLFSON awards for this research, in addition to "woman of Achievements" award from the Friends of Sheba in LA-CA-USA.

 

The research in Prof. Ferber's lab has been funded over the past 10 years by the JDRF (4 different grants of about $2.5 million, the Israel Academy of Science foundation (twice, ISF), D-Cure and the Ministry of Health
