Overview
I am starting my lab at the Lautenberg Center for Immunology and Cancer Research, Faculty of Medicine, Hebrew University of Jerusalem. I'm looking for talented postdocs, graduate students and a lab manager. The lab will use systematic approaches to study cancer genetics and epigenetics, and focus on how genetic and epigenetic alterations of regulatory DNA elements perturb chromosomal topology and gene regulation circuitry to drive cancer.

Postdoctoral research, Broad Institute, MGH and Harvard Medical School
PhD, Weizmann Institute of Science
MSc, Hebrew University of Jerusalem
BSc, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Bibliographic
Publications listed below are automatically derived from MEDLINE/PubMed and other sources, which might result in incorrect or missing publications. Faculty can login to make corrections and additions.
Newest   |   Oldest   |   Most Cited   |   Most Discussed   |   Timeline   |   Field Summary   |   Plain Text
PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
