Limor Levy

PhD. Student 

limorlevy@mail.tau.ac.il

Limor joined our group in Apr-2016 after completing her masters thesis at the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Biotechnology, Tel Aviv University.  
During her PhD, Limor focus on the impact of pregnancy on the nature of the immune response following maternal immunization.

In her MSc studies, she developed an ex- vivo system for high-throughput analysis of molecular chaperon as therapeutic strategy for the von Hipple –Lindau cancer syndrome. She examined candidates to restore folding, stability and function of VHL Tumor Suppressor Protein.

Alongside her PhD research, Limor tutors future scientists from the ‘Tel Aviv University for youth’ that promotes young scientists to discover and research in the academy during mid and high school.

Shai Rosenstein
PhD. Student 

shair@mail.tau.ac.il

Shai joined our group in Oct-2015 after completing her BSc. at the Faculty of Life Sciences, Tel Aviv University.

During her BSc. studies she worked as a research assistant in the Department of Zoology and in the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Biotechnology.

In her MSc. project Shai focused on the characterization of the antibodies elicited following infusion of anti-TNFa agent (Infliximab) to IBD patients. Specifically, Shai will look for associations between neutralizing anti drug antibodies and various cytokines (e.g. BAFF).

Alumni

Anna Vaisman Mentesh

PhD. Student (co-advisor Prof. Itai Benhar)

anna.vm4@gmail.com

Anna joined our group in Oct-2014 after completing her masters thesis at the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Biotechnology. During her master she worked on developing an animal model for in-vivo restoration of p53 cancer associated mutations and the development of a novel method of examining p53 DNA binding. In addition to her thesis, Anna worked as a teacher assistant in the genetics lab course.
Anna earned her BSc. in biology at the Faculty of Life Sciences at Tel Aviv University. During her BSc. she gained experience as a research assistant in the Department of Neurobiology working on characterization of microglia activation in a novel Alzheimer's disease transgenic mice model. In her PhD. project Anna works on analyzing the drug-antibody repertoire in inflammatory bowel disease patients treated with Infliximab. 

Yaron Hillman, PhD.

Research Associate 

Yaron completed his PhD. (direct track) in Tel Aviv University, at the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, Sackler faculty of Medicine, under the supervision of Prof. Zvi Fishelson. In his PhD. he was studying and characterizing microRNAs that modulate the sensitivity of cancer cells to complement-dependent cytotoxicity. During that time, he had worked as an instructor in the Histology and Embryology courses for medical students at the Sackler School of Medicine.

Yaron earned his B.Sc in Biology at the Faculty of Life Sciences. During his B.Sc studies, he had worked as a research assistant, investigating microRNA involvement in the regulation of amyloid precursor protein (APP) gene expression, in Alzheimer's disease transgenic mice model.
Yaron works on a novel therapeutic monoclonal antibody to combat multidrug-resistant (MDR) pathogenic bacteria.
