<p>The relevant projects address the influence of circadian clocks on exercise performance, and training efficiency, as well as the effect of chronotype, feeding, and hypoxia on exercise capacity.</p>&#xD;
&#xD;
<p>Circadian clocks are key regulators of daily physiology and metabolism in mammals. Our understanding of the role of the circadian clock and specific clock proteins in controlling exercise capacity is rudimentary.

<li><strong>Clocks resetting |</strong><em>&nbsp;</em>Recently, we have developed a new method to study resetting agents in vitro in an efficient and high-throughput manner, dubbed Circa-SCOPE (<a href="https://www.weizmann.ac.il/Biomolecular_Sciences/Asher/publications">Man... al</em>.,&nbsp;<em>Nature Communication</em>&nbsp;2021)</a>. This methodology opens the door to a wide range of applications, in both basic and translational research.

<p>Regulation of gene expression at the transcriptional and translational levels is fundamental to all biological activities and is frequently altered in disease states. Our broad research interests are (i) to elucidate how the transcription and translation processes control the cellular response to enviromental stimuli; (ii) to reveal the connections between the transcription and translation processes and (iii) to develop tools to manipulate these processes for the potential treatment of cancer, chronic inflammation and neurodegenrative diseases.</p>&#xD;

Membrane proteins make up a quarter of the proteome of every living organism and participate in nearly every biological process. We are interested in the fascinating process of how these proteins get produced, fold, and assemble in cells. The questions we address are: How do proteins fold in the membranes of living cells? How do the dynamic features of unfolded proteins assist in this process? How do cellular factors recognize membrane proteins that failed to fold and need to be cleared? The lab combines biochemical, cell biology, genetic and computational tools.

<p>G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are the largest gene family in the human genome. Their role is to translate chemical information into cellular responses, like olfactory processing, neuronal activity modulation, and hormone actions or regulating blood pressure among many. Their cellular effectors can range from various enzymes to ion channels. Interestingly, nature has designed the GPCR as a major target for many natural compounds and the pharmaceutical industry has focused its attention on designing various agonists and antagonists to treat various illnesses.

<p>Motivated and creative students with background in molecular biology are invited to join our studies of the mechanisms by which signaling by the TNF family contributes to immune defense, to chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases and to cancer, and our attempts to derive from this knowledge new ways of therapy. See our website and list of publications for the range of research subjects that we are exploring and for the range of experimental approaches that we are applying.
