News from the Goldfarb lab


October 2022

Welcome, Prof. Janet Lovett and Elena Mocanu from St. Andrews, Scotland.

Welcome, Maayan, the youngest member of our group.

July 2022

Welcome, Prof. Olav Schiemann for his visit to the Weizmann Institute of Science.


Congratulations Manas for his article in JACS 'Peptide-RNA Coacervates as a Cradle for the Evolution of Folded Domains'. An exciting collaboration with Prof. Dan Tawfik and Prof. Koby Levy from Weizmann Institute, Prof. Norman Metanis from Hebrew University, Jerusalem, and Dr. Liam Longo from Earth-Life Science Institute, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan.

June 2022

Welcome, Dr. Alexey Bogdanov from Chemistry Department, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow for joining the team as a visiting scientist. 

Goldfarb lab rocking at the RSC EPR conference. Enjoy Yasmin and Maria.

April 2022

Angeliki completed her postdoctoral tenure, and congratulations on her new position as a staff scientist in Prof. Lucio Frydman's lab, Weizmann Institute of Science.

March 2022, Welcome Ciarán, for his short-term visit.


Many congratulations to Angeliki, and Yasmin for the exciting review article on 'Characteristics of Gd(III) spin labels for the study of protein conformations' in Methods in Enzymology.

Double congratulations to Thorsten for his two articles 'Substrate binding in the multidrug transporter MdfA in detergent solution and in lipid nanodiscs' in Biophysical Journal and 'The decay of the refocused Hahn echo in DEER experiments' in Magnetic Resonance.



Post-doctoral positions available in the Goldfarb lab at the Weizmann Institute of Science

Hurry up!! two post-doc positions are available in the Goldfarb group. Visit the above link for details.


Welcome Maria,

Maria Oranges from Bela Bode's group has joined as postdoc. Congratulations for being part of our dynamic team.


good news, good news

Congratulations to Daniella for being elected International EPR Society (IES) Fellow 2020 with David Britt.

Many congratulations also to our Angeliki for receiving the 2020 Albert-Overhauser Award of the GDCh Division of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy of the German Chemical Society (GDCh) for her recent article 'Two closed ATP- and ADP-dependent conformations in yeast Hsp90 chaperone detected by Mn(II) EPR spectroscopic techniques'.  Time for double celebration.



We are happy to share our new publication in PNAS 'In-cell destabilization of a homodimeric protein complex detected by DEER spectroscopy'.  It highlights the potential of DEER for in-cell study of proteins as well as the complexities of the effects of the cellular milieu on protein structures and stability. Many congratulations to Yin and team.



We are back to buisness after Corona and Daniella is online with Lewis Kay on 4th June in a lecture series on "Emerging Topics in Biomolecular magnetic Resonance". Don't miss the exciting lecture on Mn(II) DEER to track two closed conformation in yeast HSP90.



Our Thorsten is on the way to be Dr. Thorsten. We are in a celebrating mood.


Congratulations to our Angeliki and team! Her work on HSP90 is in the news. Follow it on ynet and Weizmann Wonder Wander. Cheers!!
