In the mid eighties he joined the Faculty of Medicine of the Technion where he established "The Laboratory of Biological Oxidations and Muscle Aging". There he developed the immobilization system of aging animals as a model for sarcopenia studies in aging. This led to molecular studies of muscle breakdown involving the signal transduction pathway of NF-kB and to the discovery of the aberrant activation of NF-kB by peroxynitrite. In addition, he also has studied in the last 20 years the oxidative damage caused by cigarette smoke where, among others, he developed a new assay for oxidation of proteins and the Thermochemiluminescence (TCL) assay for biological oxidations. In the mid 90s Prof Reznick served as Secretary General of the Israeli Gerontological Society. In addition, Prof Reznick has been a member of the International and American Free Radical Societies and served as President of the Israeli Oxygen and Free Radical Society in the years 2005-2007.
