Tal Laviv

PI

I graduated from Tel Aviv University where I obtained my PhD working with Dr. Inna Slutsky. My PhD research utilized FRET and functional imaging to uncover GPCR regulation of vesicle release at single synapses. I then went to perform my postdoc in the lab of Dr. Ryohei Yasuda at the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience. There I developed an experimental system to monitor activity dependent signaling in the awake mouse brain. I started my lab in Tel Aviv University at July 2020. 

 Sharbel Eid 

MD/PhD student 

Sharbel is an MD/PhD student in the faculty of medicine in Tel Aviv University. He is interested in studying how MeCP2, an important epigenetic factor, regulates brain function and dysfunciton. To accomplish this, he is developing new FRET biosensors to dynmically visulize MeCP2 activity in the livign brain.  

 Yossi Levy 

Lab manger

Yossi obtained his PhD from Tel Aviv University, working on MET tyrosine kinase receptor and interleukin 6 (IL-6) as targets for ovarian cancer personalized therapy.

Sharbel is an MD/PhD student in the faculty of medicine in Tel Aviv University. He is interested in studying how MeCP2, an important epigenetic factor, regulates brain function and dysfunction. To accomplish this, he is developing new FRET biosensors to dynamically visualize MeCP2 activity in the living brain. In his free time, he loves to read literature books, watch documentaries and spend time with his family and friends.
