Jacob Hannah, Ph.D. (Weizmann Institute of Science) Holds a Ph.D. in Immunology from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. Jacob H. Hanna is the Senior Scientist (AKA Assistant Professor, Principal Investigator) of the JACOB HANNA LAB for Pluripotent Stem Cell Studies and Epigenetic Reprogramming at the Department of Molecular Genetics, Faculty of Biochemistry, Weizmann Institute of Science. The lab is part of the Department of Molecular Genetics at the Weizmann Institute of Science, affiliated with the Azrieli Institute for Systems Biology, and the Chromatin & RNA Gene Regulation i-Core. The Lab is an interdisciplinary group of scientists interested in understanding embryonic stem cell biology, early development and advance human disease modeling. Specifically, they investigate the process of cellular reprogramming, in which induced pluripotent stem cells are generated from somatic cells, and investigate how pluripotency is maintained throughout development in mouse and human. They utilize in their studies a diverse arsenal of biological experimentation methods, high throughput screening, advanced microscopy and genomic analyses. They also seek to combine biological experimentation with computational biology, theory and modeling, to elucidate the biological question at hand.
