Former members

Ofer received his B.Sc in Life Sciences from Ben-Gurion University at the Negev. For 6 years he was part of and managed a non-conventional defensive measures R&D team in the Ministry of Defense (ISR), during which time he gained knowledge in physical modeling of complex chemical/biological and meteorological phenomenon. He graduated with honors in his M.Sc studies in the Biotech & Food Engineering Faculty at the Technion, during which time he worked on the regulation of lineage-specific expression of IRF-8 in myeloid cells in the laboratory of Prof. Ben-Zion Levi. During this period he gained experience in epigenetics and a wide variety of molecular biology research methodologies, together with knowledge in general and biotech-specific engineering. Ofer's main project in the lab dealt with epigenomics of the auditory system. After completing his Ph.D. in our lab as a Neumann von Hethars Doctoral Fellow, Ofer began his post-doctoral training in Prof Nadav Ahituv’s laboratory at UCSF.

Shaked received her B.Sc. in Life Sciences from TAU. She is continuing for her M.Sc. in Molecular Genetics at the School of Molecular Microbiology and Biotechnology at TAU, under Prof Martin Kupiec’s supervision. In our lab, Shaked performed her undergraduate research project to define the connections between microRNAs and their targets. Specifically, she studied miR34c-5p and miR449a-5p and their potential target Atoh1, a transcription factor that impacts the development of inner ear hair cells.
