Shalev Itzkovitz received his PhD at the Weizmann Institute. He performed his postdoctoral work at MIT between 2009-2012 at the lab of Prof. Alexander van Oudenaarden. In 2012 he joined the faculty at the department of Molecular Cell Biology at the Weizmann Institute, where he is studying the design principles of mammalian tissues. Shalev is taking a close-up look at individual cells to figure out how they work together in organs such as the intestine, liver, and pancreas. He combines single molecule transcript imaging in intact tissues with single cell RNA sequencing to identify spatial division of labor between cells and within cells.
