About Us


In our lab we study how molecular processes shape behavior. In particular we focused in two main areas: the study of the circadian rhythms in drosophila and embryonic stem cells and the generation of new drosophila models of neurodegeneration (Parkinson's disease, Friedrich ataxia and PolyQ diseases).

In the lab, we utilize state of the art technology and approaches from neurosciences, molecular biology and genetics.

We are part of the Alexander Silberman Institute of Life Sciences at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Edmond J. Safra Campus).

Our group consist of 15-20 highly motivated research scientists, post-docs, graduate and undergraduate students.
