Homocysteine fibrillar assemblies display crosstalk with Alzheimer’s disease amyloid polypeptide

High levels of homocysteine (Hcy) are reported as a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Correspondingly, inborn hyperhomocysteinemia is associated with an increased predisposition to the development of dementia in later stages of life. Furthermore, despite the apparent association between protein aggregation and AD, attempts to develop a therapy that targets explicitly this process have […] Read More >

New MicroRNAs as Candidates for Depression Therapy

Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a complex, common, and recurrent mental disorder (1). The current first-line treatment for MDD is selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), which are antidepressant drugs that block serotonin reuptake. Two microRNA (miRNAs) molecules namely miR-30b-5p and miR-101a-3p were found to be downregulated in the raphe nuclei (RN) of mice following chronic […] Read More >

Dr. Burstein David

Dr. Burstein is a faculty member in The Shmunis School of Biomedicine and Cancer Research in the Life Science Faculty at Tel Aviv University.

Prof. Frenkel Dan

Research topic: The research in our laboratory is focused on the investigation of glial cell and to clarify their role in neurological diseases. We suggest that targeting glia activation in different pathological scenarios may allow us to define common pathways to further understand the role of glia in neuroprotection . We are using three models: 1) […] Read More >

Prof. Joel Daphna

Prof. Joel studied the involvement of basal ganglia-thalamocortical circuits in normal and abnormal behavior, using mainly animal models of psychopathology. More recently Prof. Joel has expanded her work to research questions related to brain, sex and gender. Ongoing studies attempt to characterize the relations between sex and brain structure and function. Other studies focus on […] Read More >

Lab of Cancer Angiogenesis and Nanomedicine

Selective therapy remains a key issue for successful treatment in cancer therapy. Prolonged administration of effective concentrations of chemotherapeutic or anti-angiogenic agents is usually not possible because of dose-limiting systemic toxicities involving non-malignant tissues. Therefore, a constant effort has been the development of new drug delivery systems that mediate drug release selectively at the tumor […] Read More >

Drug Screening Animal Model for Anti-compulsive Activity

We have developed the signal attenuation rat model of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). This model is based on the theoretical proposition that compulsive behaviors result from a deficit in the feedback, which is associated with the performance of normal goal-directed responses.  In our model, the goal-directed behavior is lever-pressing for food. The feedback associated with making […] Read More >
