Descriptions of the 2017 Fellowships:
Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, Prof. Nabieh Ayoub
Characterizing the novel role of the tumor suppressor gene, RBM6 in DNA damage response.
Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Dr. Moshe Elkabets
Activation of MET/HGF pathways confers resistance to cetuxumab in Head and Neck Cancer.
Tel-Aviv University, Prof. Gil Ast
Analysis of regulatory pathways leading to alternative splicing aberrations in ovarian and colon cancers.
Rambam Healthcare Campus, Dr. Shlomit Strulov Shachar
Geratric assessment & muscle indices as predictive factors for treatment-related toxicity and time to tumor progression (TTP) in elderly patients with advanced Lung and Breast Cancer.
Rambam Healthcare Campus, Dr. Ital Maza
Methylation Dynamics in Adenoma to Carcinoma Sequence of Sporadic Colorectal Cancer.
Sheba Medical Center, Dr. Adrian Duek
Dissecting the JAK2-V617F/STAT1 Pathway, on the way to improving the treatment on myeloprolferative neoplasms (Blood Cancers).
Tel Aviv University, Prof. Ron Shamir
Integrative computational analysis of molecular data from cancer patients. Bioinformatics (computational biology) is a new field that uses techniques from computer science and mathematics to solve problems in biology and medicine, by developing advanced computational techniques. Due to the enormous volume of data in cancer research, analysis cannot be done efficiently without bioinformatics.
Tel Aviv University, Prof. Haim Werner

Rambam Helathcare Campus, Dr. Na’ara Shorook
Mechanisms of Radioiodine Resistance in Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma.
Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Prof. Ruti Parvari
Study of the molecular basis of non-Medullary Thyroid Cancer by identification and characterization of the mutated gene causing it in a large family and its contribution in isolated cases.
Rambam Healthcare Campus, Dr. Rurh Perets
Targeting PAX8 in Gynecological Cancers (PAX 8 is marker to identify cancer cells and may enable more targeted cancer treatments)
Sheba Medical Center , Dr. Yaacov Lawrence
