Principle Investigator

 Dr. Ayala Lampel received a PhD in Biotechnology for her work in the group of Prof. Ehud Gazit from Tel Aviv University, focusing on virus proteins self-assembly. For her postdoc, she joined Prof. Rein Ulijn’s research group at the Advanced Science Research Center of the City University of New York. Her work at the Ulijn group is focused on molecular self-assembly of peptides and the role of supramolecular order/disorder in enzymatic catalysis, covering the entire range from fundamental studies to materials design. Ayala joined the School of Molecular Cell Biology & Biotechnology at Tel Aviv University in August 2019.
