Dr. Ravid Straussman graduated from the MD/Ph.D. program of Hadassah Medical School, Israel, and did his medical internship at Rabin Medical Center. In 2013, after completing a post-doc at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, he joined the Weizmann Institute as a principal investigator. The Straussman lab studies the tumor microenvironment and the tumor microbiome with a special focus on how non-cancer components in the tumor microenvironment affect the response of cancer cells to cytotoxic, targeted, and immune-mediated anti-cancer therapies. The lab also strives to translate its findings into real-world clinical applications that benefit cancer patients.
