Dr. Shani Gluska

M.D/Ph.D

During her Ph.D. Shani revealed the mechanisms by which Rabies virus hijacks the endogenous machinery of neurons in order to spread from the bite side towards the CNS. Shani also revealed the spatial signaling aspects of the neurotrophic factor GDNF and their role in neuromuscular junction formation and maintenance
