Interested in a research career in Israel? How does the biomedical job landscape look? How to apply for a grant? The NIH Visiting Fellows' Committee is hosting Prof. Uri Ashery, head of Sagol School of Neuroscience and professor in neurobiology at Tel Aviv University.

Bio: Professor Ashery received his B.Sc. in biology and chemistry (1990), and Ph.D. degree in neurobiology (1996) from the Hebrew University. He then became a postdoctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute in Gottingen, Germany. He returned in Israel in 2001 and established his research group at Tel Aviv University. He is a recipient of a Dan David Prize scholarship (2002) and the Bernard Katz Prize (2006).
His research interests are the molecular mechanisms of synaptic function under normal and pathological conditions such as neurodegenerative diseases. He is one of the chief initiators and current head of Tel Aviv University's Sagol School of Neuroscience.

Science Voices from Home is a project by the NIH Visiting Fellows' Committee to help NIH trainees explore career opportunities around the world. Look for additional countries to be highlighted in 2018.
