 Assaf Zaritsky lab of computational cell dynamics, established 2018

Our Team

Assaf Zaritsky

Principal Investigator

  • Postdoc, Danuser lab, UT Southwestern Medical Center

  • Ph.D., Computer Science, Tel Aviv University

  • M.Sc., Computer Science, BGU

  • B.Sc., Mathematics and Computer Science, BGU

Liran Sagie

M.Sc. student

  • B.Sc., Industrial Engineering & Management, Technion ​

Liran is interested in how cells integrate signals from their neighbors to decide when to die. He is taking a data-driven modeling approach to study Ferroptosis, an iron-dependent form of programmed cell death.

Amos Zamir

M.Sc. student

  • B.Sc., Computer Science, BGU 

Amos is investigating intercellular information transfer during collective calcium signaling. He is using time-series analysis and machine learning to infer the different roles that single cells take in cell-cell communication.

Assaf Nahum

M.Sc. student

  • B.Sc., Software and Information Systems Engineering, BGU (direct M.Sc. track) 

Assaf is studying the interaction of cells with their microenvironment. He is developing new image analysis algorithms to quantify the spatiotemporal cell-ECM interactions and cell-ECM-cell interactions.

Katya Smoliansky 

M.Sc. student

  • B.Sc., Bioinformatics, BGU  

Katya is applying machine learning to image cell data to systematically infer protein localization networks.

Ahmad Majadly

M.Sc. student

  • B.Sc., Computer Engineering, BGU

Ahmad is developing computational tools for high-content analysis of epithelial tight junctions.

Tom Levin

Undergraduate research

  • Biomedical Engineering, BGU (graduation 2019)

Tom is developing image analysis software to quantify the propagation of collective cell death.

Chen Galed

Undergraduate research

  • Software and Information Systems Engineering, BGU (graduation 2021)

Chen is using agent-based simulations to propose new mechanisms of collective cell death.

Yishaia Zabary

Undergraduate research

  • Software and Information Systems Engineering, BGU (graduation 2020)

Yishaia is developing computational methods to study platelet spreading.
