  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.


Dr. Topaz Altman

Ph.D. and MD candidate

Topaz completed his Ph.D. focusing on the impact of mitochondrial function on NMJs and their involvement in the specific susceptibility of motor neurons in ALS disease. Now, Topaz serves as a lab consultant, offering assistance to students and lab projects on molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration.
