"GeneNeer brings in a new era in genomic modulation"

Dr. Kinneret Shefer, Co-Founder and CEO

Our Story

Blazing New Trails

Dr. Kinneret Shefer – a Fulbright scholar, RNA researcher, entrepreneur and activist – channeled her scientific work in plant genetics into the development of a solution to drought tolerance in essential crops. Her work evolved into an innovative and ground-breaking platform capable of simplifying and embellishing the process and safety of gene editing.

She teamed with Prof. Oded Shoseyov, Professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment, an expert in nanobiotechnology, and a serial entrepreneur in agritech. Together, they co-founded GeneNeer.

Realizing the Dream

In 2022, the Company completed numerous PoCs (proofs of concept) and embarked upon others, based upon its breakthrough, IP-protected TR8™ Regulation Platform. Based on these successes, GeneNeer signed multiple collaboration agreements for research into diverse applications for multiple crops and methodologies.

GeneNeer was chosen as a FoodTech Challenger Top-10 AgriTech finalist (winners to be announced on June 1, 2023). Dr. Shefer has been interviewed by the media and presented internationally on the Company’s ground-breaking technology.

Earning Support

Based upon the company’s preliminary successes, GeneNeer secured pre-seed funding from 2b AHEAD Ventures, as well as four private investors. The Company is currently in the process of expanding its research team, partnerships and research activities.
