What drove me to choose this lab?

In my Bachelors, I worked in the Berger Lab for a summer scholarship. This experience helped me understand how working in the lab looks like. Also, I discovered the love of the Immunology research field.

My research project

The role of SlFN2 gene (which is a quiescence factor in T cells and inflammatory monocytes)  in protein trafficking.

 A first impression I had when I arrived

The students here were very kind, helpful, and funny. They care about each other as a family.

In five years I will be…

I would like to keep improving myself and building up my experience. I also hope I will be finishing my PhD degree.

Yarden Engel, ph.d student

What drove me to choose this lab?

During my bachelors studies I really enjoyed immunology courses. I decided to continue in the field, and where could be better than in my teacher’s lab?  

My research project is:

Improve T cells metabolism as an immunotherapy against solid tumors.

A funny thing in our lab 

Every day we have a different thing! Now it’s a period of Israel’s Eurovision song

A first impression I had when I arrived

I immediately understood that everyone here is a little bit crazy, and I liked it.

A memorable event we had as a lab

We had a few, like a barbecue and doing an escape room together.

In five years I will be…

Hopefully in the end of the my phd :)
