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 >

Restoring Immunity Against GI Cancers

BACKGROUND GI cancers cause over 3.5 million deaths per year globally, accounting for 35% of all cancer-related deaths. Colorectal carcinoma (CRC) is the world’s second leading cause of cancer death. Current immunotherapy treatments for CRC are hamstrung by low response rate, acquired resistance, relapse and severe side effects. ImmuNovation presents a disruptive nanomodular technology utilizing […] Read More >

Research Activity The Circadian Clock system All organisms demonstrate a wide variety of behavioral and physiological daily rhythms that are driven by an evolutionary conserved endogenous circadian clock mechanism. Maintenance of circadian rhythms is crucial for the physical and mental wellbeing, and disruption of the rhythms increases susceptibility to diseases and psychiatric disorders. Utilizing the […] Read More >

Prof. Gozes Illana

Our research is characterized by a multi-level approach to the study of brain function, behavior, memory and drug discovery, from molecules to cures. Targeting autism, schizophrenia as well as Alzheimer’s disease and related neurodegeneration and utilizing a multidisciplinary approach, our group investigates different aspects of neuronal plasticity and nerve cell protection, at the molecular, cellular […] 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 >

Research Isolation of bio active natural compounds,  mainly , anti bacterial , anti viral  and/or cytotoxic  compounds from plants and mainly marine organisms ( soft corals, sponges and tunicates ). The compounds belong to the various bio-synthetic groups , namely , terpenoids , polyketides and nitrogen containing compounds ( alkaloids ? ) . The structure […] Read More >

Prof. Kolot Mikhail

Research Interests HK022 bacteriophage site specific recombinase Integrase is the tool for human genome manipulation and gene therapy. Site specific recombinases (SSRs) catalase the site-specific recombination reaction between two specific short DNA sequences of 30-40 bp that serve as recombination sites that included integration, excision and inversion. These enzymes are widely used for the genome manipulations […] Read More >

Prof. LEDERKREMER Gerardo Zelmar

Research Prof. Lederkremer’s lab has been interested in the mechanisms of protein folding and trafficking in the early secretory pathway of mammalian cells. He has focused especially on mechanisms of ER protein quality control and on recognition and delivery of misfolded proteins from the ER to the cytosolic proteasomes for ERAD. These processes are intimately […] Read More >
