B.Sc: Ariel university, School of health sciences, Pre-medicine

Research Focus:

Molecular mechanism of resilience to stress: the role of Glucocorticoid Receptor translocation mechanism and its implication on the response to stress.

I started my academic career at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem where i got my B.Sc.Med in 2017. The most exciting part of my bachelor degree was neuroscience and therefore i decided to continue in that direction. Prof. Pinhasov accepted me as a M.Sc student in his Laboratory of Behavioural and Molecular Psychiatry at Ariel University. Here i am trying to uncover differences in NMDAR expression between stress resilient and sensitive strains in stressful situations, which i hope will help to reveal the role of glutamatergic system in stress regulation and depression.
