MIKE FAINZILBER Associate Professor, Depart ment of Biological Chemistry, Weizmann Institute of Science , Rehovot, Israel Mike Fainzilber was born in Tanzania, East Africa, where an early exposure to the wildlife of the Serengeti Plains and the Indian Ocean instilled in him a lifelong fascination with the biological sciences. In 1972, his family moved to Israel, where he studied at the Hebr ew University of Jerusalem. His postdoctoral training was at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. He joined the faculty of the Weizmann Institute’s Department of Biological Chemistry in 1998, where he is curre ntly the incumbent of the Chaya Professorial Chair in Molecular Neuroscience.
The main focus of research in Mike’s group is on retrograde signaling in healthy and in injured neurons. Axons are extremely long in relation to the size of neuronal cell bodies, and highly sophisticated mechanisms are required for the transmission of macromolecular signals from terminals or lesion sites to cell bodies. The group seeks to understand the molecular basis of these mechanisms.
