Principal Investigator at the Poultry & Aquaculture Dept.

Research Interests / Job description
The research in the lab focuses on developmental biology and embryology, mainly using the chick embryo as a model organism.
The mission of our research is increasing basic knowledge on embryogenesis, to promote poultry agriculture, to help securing healthy food for the next generations while keeping with highest standards of animal welfare and global sustainability.

In our lab we focus on several fields from basic science to cutting-edge biotechnology.

1. Developing technologies to create genetically transformed chickens, to solve critical animal welfare issues and to secure global nutrition.

2.Early stages of development, studying the blastulation, cardiogenesis, and reproduction in chickens.

3.Developing powerful imaging using the High Resolution Episcopic Microscopy (HREM) for 3D modelling of plant and animal tissues, for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7jb1xNlqOo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOOFrmU9k1E https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YocgJz1heeE

Embryologist by training, Dr. Cinnamon began his academic career while completing his MSc and PhD studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, which were followed by two post-doctorate fellowships at the Hebrew University, and at the National Institute for Medical Research, in London, UK.

Back in Israel, Yuval joined the Hadassah Medical Center to run the genetic research lab, focusing on rare diseases in humans. Equipped with a toolbox which comprises bioinformatics, biochemistry, molecular biology, embryology, cell biology, microsurgery, imaging, genetics and genomics, all the way to the whole animal biology, he joined the Agricultural Research Organization – the Volcani Center as a PI.

Focusing on embryology using the chicken as a model organism, the research in his lab addresses questions on early embryogenesis and genetic transformation in chickens. All projects aim to improve food security, health, global sustainability and animal welfare issues, using cutting edge technologies.
