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:

  1. The involvement of microRNAs in astrocyte activation and inflammation.
  2. The microRNA signatures associated with mental disorders such as Schizophrenia and Bipolar disorder
  3. Molecular-imaging analysis of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome individuals (with Prof Talma Hendler)
  4. The involvement of small RNAs in repairing Alzheimer’s diseased mice models (with Prof. Uri Ashery)
