Ithai Rabinowitch, PhD
I have a very deep interest in neurobiology from both a scientific and engineering perspective. In fact, I began my academic journey studying Industrial Engineering at Tel Aviv University. I then carried out a PhD in Computational Neuroscience at the Hebrew University. After that I did extensive experimental postdoctoral work on the neural circuits of the nematode worm C. elegans, this was performed around the globe, in Cambridge (UK), Jerusalem (Israel) and Seattle (USA). I am now combining all these strands to study the foundations of neural function both by exploring the basic nervous system of C. elegans and by engineering new synaptic connections into this system.
