    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.

    Detecting unseen markers for disease using machine-learning image analysis:

    inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a serious clinical condition affecting millions around the world. It is evident that some properties of the disease manifest before the onset of clinical symptoms. To date, these properties where shown on the molecular scale. To use them for clinical diagnosis would require adapting them to existing medical imaging methods.

    In this project, we intend to detect the earliest signs of IBD in colonoscopy. Therefore, a machine learning solution capable to find the pre-clinical stages of inflammation through image analysis is required. This would include developing the algorithm and training it, while also tagging the training dataset.

    The work will be performed in collaboration with the groups of Prof. Irit Sagi and Yonina Eldar.

    Chameleons, copepods, fish, and many other organisms, use organic crystals for an astonishing variety of optical functions. These crystals are formed by specialized cells, in which remarkable control over crystal shape, size, and assembly is obtained using strategies that are beyond the state of the art in materials science. While these cells were identified many years ago, almost nothing is known about their biology, particularly the cellular processes involved in organic crystal formation. We use biological tools and physical and chemical methodologies to study the processes organisms use to produce either optically functional or pathological bio-organic crystals. Our primary model organisms for these studies are zebrafish and medaka.

    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.
