Dr. Alicia Arroyo

Group leader at CNIC

Dr. Berta Strulovici

Head of The Israel National Center for Personalized Medicine The Center applies novel technologies in genomics, proteomics and High Throughput Screening to enable and advance Personalized Medicine in Israel.

Prof. Yossi Yarden

Growth factors and their transmembrane receptors relay systems in cancer phases and translational research.

Prof. Irit Sagi

Targeting ECM remodeling in cancer and inflammatory diseases

Prof. Moshe Oren

p53 as a tumor suppressor: exploring the mechanistic links between regulation of gene expression and cancer.

Dr. Ravid Straussman

Studying different mechanisms which render cancer cells resistant to chemotherapy. The group employs advanced high-throughput screening methods as well as in-vivo models to study the biology that underlies chemoresistance with the hope that breakthrough in this field would ultimately translate into better treatment options for cancer patients.

Prof. Yardena Samuels

Identifies the genes that are altered in cancer and elucidates the cellular pathways that these alterations perturb. To do this her group employs high throughout, whole exome and whole genome sequencing technologies, to identify novel mutations in cutaneous malignant melanoma.

Dr. Valery Krizhanovsky

Studies molecular mechanisms of cellular senescence (a permanent cell cycle arrest) and its role in human diseases. His lab utilizes elaborate mouse models and tissue culture techniques to understand how senescent cells communicate with their microenvironment to impact wound healing response, cancer progression and aging.

Prof. Michal Neeman

Vascular remodeling in cancer and metastasis: MRI imaging approach

Prof. Idit Shachar

Studying several aspects of the mechanisms that regulate B cell homing, differentiation and survival.

Prof. Avigdor Scherz

Quantification of atoms, groups and molecules electronegati using metal substituted bacteriochlorophylls and application to chemical reactivity. Resolving the forces which drive membrane protein assembly. The mechenism behind generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) by illuminating novel bacteriochlorophyll derivatives and their application in photodynamic therapy (PDT) of tumors.
