SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:
I am very interested in the complexity of the processes in cells, and in the mechanisms regulating these processes. It is also very exciting to see how different genes and processes in cells influence various diseases, especially neural diseases and then attempt to determine a possible therapy for these diseases. I would be glad to contribute to the research concerning the background of neural diseases.
