Alumni
 
Avichai Bonnie M.Sc student During his M.Sc studies, Avichai studied the secreted semaphorine family and their receptors in relation to neuromuscular disruption in ALS.

shani Dr. Shani Gluska M.D / Ph.D During her Ph.D Shani revealed the mechanisms by which Rabies virus hijacks the endogenous machinery of neurons in order to spread from the bite side towards the CNS. Shani also revealed the spatial signaling aspects of the neurotrophic factor GDNF and their role in neuromuscular junction formation and maintenance.
       

Nimrod Rotem M.Sc During his M.Sc studies Nimrod worked on axonal miRNAs in ALS
       

Dr. Keren Ben-Yaacove Senior Researcher  
       

Dr. Noga Gershoni-Emek Ph.D Noga did her M.Sc.,in the Technion. Her Ph.D project focuses on understanding miRNA transport in motor neurons in health and disease 
               

Miri Shvimmer M.Sc Student Miri is an M.Sc student studying the molecular communication mechanisms of neurodegeneration
    
   Eitan Zahavi Ph.D Student   During his Ph.D, Eitan studied the lateral trafficking and dimerization states of neurotrophin receptors along the plasma membrane.
