Dr. Ido Amit, Department of Immunology
Dr. Amit studies the genomic code enabling immune cells to differentiate into specific subtypes and devise a specific response to invading pathogens. His main focus is trying to understand how gene regulatory networks activate this code.
He is developing and applying state-of-the-art high-throughput genomic tools and interdisciplinary approaches to address these critical biological issues, as well as medical questions, primarily concerning cancer and inflammatory bowel disease. He believes that elucidating the underlying principles of the regulatory code will allow us to positively affect the future of personalized medicine
