The Perlson lab is committed to educating the next generation of researchers with a focus on scientific excellence.

We are proud of our research team and their scientific achievements.

Join our team!
Want to be part of a dedicated team driven by
curiosity and pure passion for science? 
You might be exactly whom we are looking for!

We are looking for enthusiastic and highly motivated graduate students and Post-docs.
  Interested candidates, please send a mail with cv to Eran Perlson,  


Prof. Eran Perlson

Principle Investigator

Eran did his Ph.D in Prof. Mike Faiezilber's lab at the Weizmann institute working on retrograde injury signalling in neurons and completed his postdoctoral training in Prof. Erika Holzbaur's lab at University of Pennsylvania working on axonal transport and neurodegeneration.


Mrs. Tal Gradus-Pery

Associate researcher and lab manager

Tal did her B.Sc in biotechnology engineering in Ort braude, and worked for 6 years in laboratories at the Weizmann institute and Tel-Hashomer Hospital.Tal is now incharge of lab administration as is an active research associate.


Mr. Ariel Ionescu

Ph.D. candidate

Ariel is studying the mechanisms of local protein synthesis in axons and neuromuscular junctions, and further trying to reveal how muscle to motor-neuron transmission of RNA's regulates this process, which may also be affected in ALS.


Mr. Topaz Altman

M.D/Ph.D. candidate

Topaz is studying the role and function of mitochondria in axons and their contribution to the selective vulnerability of motor neurons in neurodegenerative diseases such as ALS.


Mr. Amjd Ibraheem

Ph.D. candidate

Amjd is investigating the role of RNA local protein synthesis, regulation by condensate in the neuromuscular junction.

Ms. Lior Ankol

Ph.D. candidate

Lior is studying the role of miRNA-126-5p in motor neurons degeneration and regeneration process in ALS disease. 

Ms. Miri Kuchersky

Ph.D. candidate

Miri is studying mechanisms of BDNF signaling on mitochondria and axon maintenance  

Ms. Mira Assad

Ph.D. candidate

Mira is using humanized iPSC-derived motor neuron-muscle co-culture to study the mechanisms of axon and NMJ degeneration.  

Ms. Naama Rosmarin

M.Sc. candidate

Naama is studying the role of muscular TDP-43 in mediating muscle-motor neurons communication, and NMJ maintenance, and aims to elucidate whether muscular TDP-43 in ALS mediates synaptic toxicity by interfering with local protein synthesis.
