Phytor hosts the Next Step Israel Internships program

This summer, July-August 2019, Phytor and Resorcix hosted three American high school students as part of the Next Step Israel Internships program. This program offers prestigious internships for teens who are interested in gaining hands-on experience and exposure in the field of their choice. At the same time, the program gives the teens an opportunity to experience Israel and its culture, giving them an appreciation for their land and heritage.

Over the course of their internship the students were given a glimpse of the process of drug development, beginning with a plant collected from the wild and culminating with a product that can be a candidate for treatment. While of course this is impossible in just a few short weeks, they were able to gain some experience in each stage of the process. The stages include extraction, evaporation, and concentration of extract. They were then showed how to perform chemical analysis on the extracts, test the extracts using several kinds of biological assays, and perform the required data analysis to determine whether the extracts can indeed be candidates for treatment. Additionally, they were tasked with researching literature for different current cancer treatments and attempting to determine the mechanisms of action and immunological applications of the treatments using the skills and understanding that they gained throughout their internship.
