    Our lab investigates quantum phenomena which focus on the interplay between correlations and topology. This intriguing interplay allows to develop unique realizations of non-abelian quasi-particles (qps) which are neither Boson nor Fermion-like. Among the phases which host these qps are the well-known fractional quantum Hall effect, topological superconductivity, and the recently emerging field of moire-superlattcies (twistronics). We are developing experiments in these arrowheads to unravel this intriguing physics.

    This line of research often utilizes quantum materials whose reduced dimensionality enhances quantum effects. We profit from the use of various van der Waals (vdW) materials (graphene, hBN, TMDs, etc.) as well as high-mobility two-dimensional GaAs electron gas, which are both grown in our department. Fabrication is performed in a state-of-the-art clean room facility, specially designed for vdW materials nanofabrication.

    These devices will be measured with transport techniques including quantum Hall interferometry, Josephson interferometry, capacitance measurements, thermal transport, and shot noise measurements. These measurements require high magnetic fields and low electron temperatures.

    We live in fortunate times, where there are still many fundamental unsolved problems in astrophysics, while technological progress allows new observations, which may make some of them solvable. Now is the time to attack the most puzzling challenges posed to us by the Universe.

    Join Doron Kushnir's group to study explosions and extreme stars of the Universe. We use theoretical and computational tools to interpret state-of-the-art observations, aiming at resolving fundamental problems in astrophysics.

    Our research centers on the theory of complex systems and biophysics, applied to a broad spectrum of problems, mainly in the context of the physics of living systems. Our research is often done in collaboration with experimental groups. Key themes of our lab include mathematical modeling of cell growth and mechanics, both at the single-cell level and the population level, stochastic processes, disordered systems, and coarse-grained modeling of complex processes.

    Students are being sought for developing new experiments in the area of electron-enhanced nuclear magnetic resonance. This so-called dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) NMR experiment subjects electrons in the sample to microwave irradiation, and then uses the ensuing nuclear polarization enhancement to open new analytical and metabolic frontiers in NMR. Topics involved in this research will include developing new forms of quantum control between spins to enable a more efficient electron-->nuclear polarization transfer, automation, cryogenics, and the design and construction of radiofrequency and microwave components.  Programming experience also required. Applications of this project to solve both analytical and biophysical problems are also envisioned.

    Immunotherapy has sparked new hope for oncology in recent years, due to its remarkable ability to induce durable response in patients with metastatic cancer. It is therefore essential to accurately delineate the interactions of cancer cells with the immune system. The project will use multiomic tools including whole exome sequencing , RNAseq, ribosome profiling, proteomic, HLA-peptidomics and systems biology to decipher the genetic, neo-antigenic and immune landscape in melanoma. Followup functional and immunological analysis of  relevant genes and neoantigens will be conducted using novel mouse models

    The goal of our research is to understand how pancreatic beta cells perform their unique functions. Beta cells are the only cell in the body capable of significant production of insulin. They store insulin intracellularly, releasing it to the bloodstream in response to a variety of physiological stimuli including nutrients such as glucose and fatty acids, hormones and neurotransmitters.

    We aim to understand comprehensively the mechanisms by which membrane proteins operate. We believe that “seeing is comprehending”, and therefore, we aim to:

    1. Visualize to atomic resolution the 3D structures of the membrane proteins. 

    2. Video, on a single-molecule level, the motions of these membrane proteins as they function, either alone or through interactions with other proteins. 

    3. Understand how the structures and dynamics of the membrane proteins assist their functional activity.

    We use cutting-edge techniques that allow us to achieve these goals, most particularly, high-speed atomic force microscopy (HS-AFM), cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM), and an array of complementary biochemical and biophysical techniques.
