Tal Laviv

PI

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

Tomer Kagan

MD/PhD student 

Tomer is an MD/PhD student at Tel Aviv University. Tomer is interested in developing novel biosensors, and using them to visualize and understand neural protein signalling, activity and development. Tomer loves to play the piano, watch films, works as an animator and is also pursuing a PhD in Memeology.

Aviv Zaid Or

MSc student at Sagol School of Neuroscience

Aviv is an MSc student at Sagol School of Neuroscience in Tel Aviv University. She is interested in studying the function of the MeCP2 gene in regulating brain function and neuronal activity. To accomplish this, she is examining the protein expression in inhibitory versus excitatory neurons by using genetic editing - CRISPR/cas9, and in vivo microscopy Two-photon fluorescent lifetime microscopy (2pFLIM). Cohead of shenanigans.
