A paper that I co-authored, was recently featured on the cover of Science Translational Medicine. It goes by the title Mechanism and Reversal of Drug-Induced Nephrotoxicity on a Chip [1], and it is kind of a big deal. Yet, to understand what this paper is about and why you should care, we have to understand the problems it seeks to solve. This means learning a little bit about how we make drugs, the FDA, and the drug-approval process.

A little over a year ago I delved into the sea of web development. And yes, it is a sea, for it is tumultuous. It is unpredictable and confusing, and if you are not careful you can easily get lost. Spending too much time in it will make you seasick, and the even most seaworthy programmers will throw up in a vicious storm.

I could go on with the analogy, because the tools are a ship that can break in this sea, and the wind will come and set any journey astray, no matter how well it was planned. …

This is the speech I gave as valedictorian at my high school graduation:

Writing speeches is always hard, you can never fully know what your audience values or their average attention span. As I put pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard, I knew I wanted my speech to be emotional and inspirational. Yet, I do not have too many amazing experiences that you can learn from, unless you count the sheer number of times I have lost my…

The world around us is changing rapidly, from machine learning to cryptocurrencies, every new breakthrough claims to be the ‘thing’ that replaces the old, that changes the game, that revolutionizes the economy. Yet, there are only a few things that have made slow but honest progress in the past years, things that really do cause change. For example, the advancements in computing power have been quite predictable for the past decade, but the consequences of this steady growth are widespread. From being able…

I propose a new cryptocurrency fundamentally different from every other cryptocurrency. We will discuss the advantages, and the purpose behind my proposal later on, but for now I simply want to discuss its practical differences. It is different due to a single reason:

  1. This new currency is not based on a public ledger for transactions between users, but a public record of every coin’s location and history.

To clarify what this means…

I have lived in Israel for almost a year now. A year can change a person. Yet, my year has not. I have not changed, I have grown. When it comes down to it, my progress in the past year has been far greater than any other period of my life. I have accomplished more, learnt more, struggled more, wondered more, and thought harder and deeper than ever before. Yet, I have not become a new person, I have not abandoned who I was, I have not changed. I am…

I have noticed a peculiar question that constantly comes up in my daily schedule. It is asked by my rabbis, peers, friends, and even the very books that I immerse myself in every day. That question: why?

Every time a statement is made, a question proposed, an answer supplied, a support provided, or an explanation expounded upon, we always ask why. Why was it given? Why in this way? Why at this time? Why here and not there? Why, why, why do we use this little word so much?
