Professor of Molecular Biology
, Microbiology & Molecular Genetics, IMRIC
After my military service I decided to focus on biology, since it looked very interesting. Upon my graduation I reflected on my years of study and realized how much I thoroughly enjoyed doing my research and investigations. I also knew that I loved to teach. Taking both of these issues into account I understood that the best place for me to further my career and passion for science would be at the Hebrew University. The university lifestyle would be a perfect match for me.
Fortunately, I was given the opportunity to make my dream come true and follow my own stimulating scientific questions, establish a research group of wonderful students and make important discoveries.
