Dr. Yechiel Elkabetz
Stem Cell Research
Yechiel Elkabetz has earned his BSc, MSc and PhD in Cell Biology from Tel Aviv University. He has started his investigation of human pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) and neural stem cells (NSCs) in 2004 at Lorenz Studer group at Sloan-Kettering Institute, NY. His study at the Sloan led to the isolation of a novel early type of NSCs termed rosette neural stem cells, which became a platform for understanding early neural specification events in vitro. In 2009, he established his lab at Tel Aviv University.
His interests include human pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) and neural stem cells (NSCs).
