Thomas Jefferson University Delegation Visits I-CORE at Tel Aviv University

I-CORE/Gene Regulation in Complex Human Disease and The Edmond J. Safra Center for Bioinformatics sponsored a delegation on Jan. 21, 2013 from Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, and spent the day at a joint meeting at the Sackler Faculty of Medicine entitled “Computation and Medicine.” Speakers included investigators from Tel Aviv and Bar-Ilan Universities. I-CORE members Karen Avraham, Erez Levanon, Noam Shomron and Eytan Ruppin described their latest research findings and their use of computational biology to study human disease. These were complemented by Isidore Rigoutsos on microRNA targeting, Jan Hoek on the microRNA regulatory network in liver regeneration, Gyorgy Hajnoczky on the ER:mitochondrial synapse, Raj Vadigepalli and Jim Schwaber on regulatory networks, Karen Knudsen on molecular approaches to targeting prostate cancer and Laurence Eisenlohr on MHC class II processing of viral antigens. Questions and discussions are leading to collaborative interactions between scientists and students from Thomas Jefferson, Tel Aviv and Bar-Ilan Universities.
