I graduated with a Ph.D from the laboratory of Prof. Eliahu Zlotkin at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where my research focused on Insect-selective neurotoxins expressing Baculoviruses. In December 2000 I joined the laboratory of Professor Jeffrey Glenn's at Stanford School of Medicine as a postdoctoral fellow. Here my research focused on HCV membrane association, specifically the association of NS5A and NS4B with host cell membranes and its role in HCV replication.
As a Senior Research Scientist at Professor Glenn's lab my interests focus around three major themes:
1. Broad spectrum antivirals targeting host functions
2. Viral genome RNA structures as antiviral targets
3. None Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) and its progression to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)
