    Fatty Liver Disease
    Fatty Liver disease (FLD) is a common metabolic pathology of high-producing ruminants in late gestation and early lactation. Intriguingly, although develops upon different circumstances, the pathology is very similar to that of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) which commonly develops along with the metabolic syndrome epidemic in human. To better understand and treat FLD we employ the extensive knowledge gained on NAFLD. Similarly, we aim to use FLD in sheep as a large animal model system to advance research and therapeutic development for NAFLD.

    Epigenetic regulation of thermotolerance acquisition
    Thermal stress during the critical postnatal sensory developmental period determines a delicate balance of a probably adjustable stress response set-point. The adjustment of the thermal-response is determined by hypothalamic neuronal network remodeling wh

    Generating genome edited chicken models using the CRISPR-Cas9 technology
    The CRISPR-Cas9 technology has opened a new era in genome editing. This highly specific and efficient system was shown to be effective in many animal models as well as in chickens. The immense potential of the system can be used for modifying chick breeds
    Education requirements
    Ph.D in life sciences

    Relationship between cardiogenesis and metabolism in the chicken embryo
    The effects of metabolic pathways activity on the morphogenetic process during early stages for heart formation are poorly understood. Using advanced micromanipulation methods in-ovo combined with cutting-edge imaging technologies we study how alteration
