Adi Salzberg

  Adi Salzberg is a Professor in the Department of Genetics and Developmental Biology in the Ruth and Bruce Rappaport Faculty of Medicine at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel.

Dr. Salzberg completed her B.Sc. degree in 1986 in the Faculty of Biology in the Technion and continued her studies towards a doctorate degree in biological sciences in the same Faculty, under the supervision of Dr. Ze’ev Lev (D.Sc. 1992). In 1993-1995, as a postdoctoral fellow with Dr. Hugo Bellen, at the Baylor College of Medicine, she performed large-scale genetic screens aimed at identifying essential genes required for normal patterning of the peripheral nervous system using the model organism Drosophila melanogaster – the fruit fly. In 1996 Dr. Salzberg returned to the Technion to establish her own research group in the Faculty of Medicine.  Her research seeks to decipher the genetic basis of pattern formation and organogenesis in the peripheral nervous system of the fruit fly and to understand the principle of action of proprioceptive sensory organs.  Dr. Salzberg received The Jacob Green Prize for Excellence in Teaching in 2014 and the Yanai Prize for Excellence in Academic Education in 2018.
