Rotem Ben-Tov Perry
Ph.D. 2007-2012, Postdoc and Senior Intern, 2012-2015.
Rotem analyzed subcellular localization mechanisms for Importin beta1 mRNA. She generated a knockout mouse model of the 3'UTR, identified the specific localization motif, and characterized an RNA binding protein responsible for Importin beta1 axonal localization. She moved on to a staff scientist position in Igor Ulitsky's laboratory at WIS in November 2015.
