Anat Ben-Zvi

Anat Ben-Zvi is an associate professor at Ben Gurion University of the Negev in the Department of Life Sciences of the Faculty of Natural Sciences. She has a Ph.D from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel and a Post-doctorate from Northwestern University, Evanston, USA.

The current projects include:

1. Developing a toolbox of folding sensors to monitor proteostasis challenges.
2. Determining the genetic and physical interactions of various metastable proteins and sensors with the cellular folding machinery.
3. Identifying cell-specific and cell-nonspecific modifiers of proteostasis in C. elegans and comparing the
folding capacity of different cell types.

4. Evaluating the impact of the expression of various aggregation-prone proteins on the folding capacity of different cell types.
