The Israeli Cell Death Society

Our Goal

Israeli Cell Death Society (IsCDS) has the mission to promote the study and scientific excellence of research in the area of cell death in Israel. The IsCDS ??XX will XX?? offer Israeli researchers interested in the field of cell death (and related areas) a framework for scientific interactions, and the exchange of information and reagents within Israel and internationally.

Our Members

The members of the society are leading researchers in all the research universities in Israel

Prof. Eli Arama

Cellular destruction processes are essential for the survival and wellbeing of all cells, tissues, and organs in virtually all organisms. The pathogenesis of many diseases, including cancer and neurodegenerative disorders is attributed to the malfunctioning of these processes. Whereas the use of cell biology and biochemistry approaches have shed invaluable light on some of the basic mechanisms involved in the regulation and execution of different cellular destruction processes, relatively much less is known about the roles and functions of these processes in development and homeostasis of the organism.

Prof. Sarit Larisch

Prof. Sarit Larisch was until recently chair of the Departments of Biology and Medical Sciences, and Head of the Apoptosis and Cancer Research Laboratory at the University of Haifa, Israel. She received her BSc in Biology from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, her MSc (cum Laude) from the Lautenberg Center for General and Tumor Immunology, Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical School, Jerusalem, and her Ph.D from the same institution. For her PhD research, Prof. Larisch was awarded the Lamas-Foundation Award from the Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical School. Prof. Larisch received the Fogarty International Research Fellowship Award for her post-doctoral studies at the National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda, USA. During this period, she discovered a novel cell death protein, termed ARTS, which is a key protein promoting apoptosis and a tumor suppressor protein.
