Prof. Ron Dzikowski

Welcome to my first vlog. I am excited to share with you the investigations that we are currently working on in our lab. In this vlog I focus on malaria, a mosquito-born disease caused by a parasite. Malaria does not have a vaccine nor is there a cure. About 90% of the cases of malaria are in the African Region. Please watch my vlog to learn more about the fatal disease and our lab's work.

In my latest Vlog I discuss our most recent research in the lab, collaborating with another Hebrew University lab. Through our partnership research we have made great progress and could have discovered a drug using aging manipulation in the fight against neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Check out my video and I look forward to updating you again soon.
