Research topic: Our team focuses on the analysis of genomic sequences together with gene expression to model the regulation of gene expression during health and disease.
Research methods: Deep sequencing, microarrays, molecular and cellular biology techniques.
Main projects in the lab include:
- The involvement of microRNAs in astrocyte activation and inflammation.
- The microRNA signatures associated with mental disorders such as Schizophrenia and Bipolar disorder
- Molecular-imaging analysis of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome individuals (with Prof Talma Hendler)
- The involvement of small RNAs in repairing Alzheimer’s diseased mice models (with Prof. Uri Ashery)
