Prof. Eran Meshorer

Coordinator, Epigenetics and stem cell differentiation


Prof Eran Meshorer holds The Arthur Gutterman Chair in Stem Cell Research. Eran completed his PhD at the Hebrew University and his post-doctoral studies at the National Cancer Institute, NIH.


In 2007, he returned to the Hebrew University to head the "Epigenetics, Stem Cells & Neurons" laboratory at the Department of Genetics, The Institute of Life Sciences, and the Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences (ELSC). Meshorer's research focuses on single-cell and genome-wide approaches to understand chromatin plasticity and epigenetic regulation in embryonic and neuronal stem cells, during reprogramming, and in pluripotent models of neurodegenerative diseases, as well as epigenetics of archaic genomes ("paleo-epigenetics").


Prof. Meshorer received several national and international awards, including the Hestrin Prize from the Israel Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ISBMB), and a Gold Medal from Charles University, Prague. His lab has been funded by grants from the ERC, HFSP (Human Frontiers) and the John Templeton Foundation, among many others. He was also the coordinator of the Marie-Curie EU-funded training network 'EpiSyStem', and is currently the coordinator of the Horizon2020 Pathfinder project 'RT-SuperES'.
