Reproduction, Development and Evolution

SUMO protease localization

Read below for a selection of our research on evolution and reproduction.


"Molecular Analysis of Ubiquitin and SUMO Pathways in the C. Elegans Model"

Current projects in the lab of Dr. Limor Broday, Ph.D.include the regulation of morphogenetic processes by SUMO (small ubiquitin-like modifier), and the role of E3 ubiquitin ligases in normal development and under cellular stress conditions.


"Sex & Bone"

Dr. Yankel Gabet, D.M.D., Ph.D. and his research group investigate sexual dimorphism in skeletons, from differences in bone formation and in bone mass between males and females. 


"Evolutionary Medicine, Paleopathology and Bio-history"

Prof. Israel Hershkovitz, Ph.D. researches the transition from hunting-gathering to farming as well as the origin of the anatomically modern Homo sapiens. He also looks for diseases in ancient bones and tries to understand modern disease through an evolutionary perspective.


"Theoretical Biophysics of Membranes and Cytoskeleton"

The research group of Prof. Michael M. Kozlov, Ph.D., seeks to reveal the common mechanistic themes in the function of membrane shaping proteins acting in different intracellular systems by modeling them. 


"Laboratory for Bio-History and Evolutionary Medicine"

Dr. Hila May's lab is inter-disciplinary and focuses on both the evolutionary history of anatomical systems and their impact on current population health as well as on reconstructing the daily life of ancient populations.


"Investigating Normal and Deficient Visual Functions"

The research of Dr. Uri Polat, Ph.D.focuses on function, development and plasticity of perceptual interactions in normal and abnormal visual cortex. 


"Reproduction in Animal Models and in Humans"

Dr. Ruth Shalgi, Ph.D. researches Reproductive Physiology in animal models and in humans.


"Cellular Mechanics and Tissue Morphogenisis"

Prof. Ronen Zaidel-Bar is interested in understanding how mechanical forces are generated by cells and how cells use these forces to change shape and move, as happens during cell division, cell migration, and tissue morphogenesis.
