Dr. Zippora (Zippi) Brownstein

Research Associate


Zippi received her Bachelor’s degree in Communication Disorders at Tel Aviv University and her Master’s degree in Genetics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Her Ph.D., as well as her post-doctoral training, were completed in genetics in our laboratory at Tel Aviv University, where she worked on identifying and characterizing genes involved in deafness in the Jewish population. Today, Zippi continues her work in our lab as a Research Associate, combining experimental and computational techniques in order to detect all the ‘deafness genes’ in the Jewish population and reach a comprehensive view of the roles these genes play in hearing and deafness.
