Dr. Galit Katarivas Levy is a researcher in the field of biomaterials and 3D printing, with a unique and strong background in materials science and engineering, biomechanics, and tissue engineering. She received the B.Sc., M.Sc. (magma cum laude), and Ph.D. from the Department of Material Engineering, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), Israel, in 2008, 20010, and 2016, respectively, and she completed postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Cambridge, UK, in the Department of Engineering, Division C - Materials Engineering & Material-Tissue Interactions. In Oct 2020, she joined as a senior lecturer to the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BGU), where she is the head of the Biomaterials & 3D-printing ​Laboratory.  She is the recipient of the 40 Most Promising Young People of 2021 by The Marker, 2019 Endorsement for Tier 1 as Exceptional Talent by the Royal Academy of Engineering, UK, the prestigious Blavatnik Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, and the Reuben Foundation Postdoctoral Award. Dr. Katarivas Levy's research focuses on developing advanced biomaterials and using additive manufacturing (AM) technologies for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Specifically, she is interested in using AM to create patient-specific bone scaffolds and skin patches that can mimic the structure and function of native tissues. She is also interested in developing new biomaterials that can promote bone tissue regeneration and enhance integration with the host tissue based on high-performance polymer-based composites. In recognition of her research accomplishments, she was recently awarded a highly competitive grant to support her ongoing research from the Israel Ministry of Science & Technology (MOST) - Science Forefront. Dr. Katarivas Levy also collaborates with surgeons from Soroka and Tel-Aviv medical centers and with leading industries in Israel such as Synergy3DMed, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, and Negev Nuclear Research Center, to translate her research findings into clinical practice and industrial applications.
