Prof. Emmanuel Doram Levy

Principal Investigator

I grew up in France, where I did my B.Sc. and M.Sc. I received my Ph.D. in 2008 from Cambridge University, UK, working at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology with Sarah Teichmann. I then did my post-doc at the University of Montreal, Canada, with Stephen Michnick, as an EMBO and HFSP Fellow.

I started my group at the Weizmann Institute of Science in July 2012, and our research focuses on characterizing principles of proteome regulation and self-organization in cells.

Research Associate

I obtained my Ph.D. in 2012 at the University of Granada, Spain, working on the evolution and design of protein function. Currently, I'm studying how proteins self-assemble into high-order structures from a physical, evolutionary, and cellular perspective.

Postdoctoral fellow

I focused my work on the principles of proteome organization and evolution. My goal is to decipher the evolutionary forces that shape the cellular interior by analyzing the interplay between cellular abundance, biophysical features, and molecular evolution of proteins. Also, I develop tools for image analysis (www.yeastrgb.org, customs JS/FiJi scripts) to probe subcellular organization using fluorescence microscopy.

Postdoctoral fellow

I obtained my Ph.D. in 2019, from the University of Calcutta, where I investigated how the evolutionary trajectories of self-assembling molecular machines harbor the imprints of their assembly pathways. My postdoctoral work focuses on the evolution of protein oligomeric states in the face of genome expansion. Intriguingly, extant prokaryotes and eukaryotes harbor homomer- and heteromer-rich proteomes. I particularly aim to understand how and why did this paradigm shift in protein oligomeric state took place.

Postdoctoral fellow

I received my Ph.D. in 2019 from Paris Sud University. Based on protein structure analyses, I explored the interplay between the physico-chemistry of protein surface, functional, and non-functional interactions. I continue to study protein interactions and I am developing an approach to infer quantitive data on protein interactions in yeast.
