Neta Erez, PhD

Associate Professor @Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University

Head @Laboratory of Tumor Biology
Vice President @Israeli Society for Cancer Research

Tel Aviv, Israel

Prof. Erez is studying the biology of tumor metastasis, focusing on the metastatic microenvironment, cancer-related inflammation and the role of stromal and immune cells in facilitating the early and late stages of metastasis. The main goal of her research is to characterize key molecular pathways in the communication between tumor cells and their microenvironment that can be targeted by novel therapeutics.

Prof. Erez began her academic career at the Weizmann Institute of Science, where she performed her PhD in molecular cell biology with Prof. Varda Rotter. Supported by a fellowship from the Cancer Research Institute (CRI), Prof. Erez carried out her postdoctoral research in the laboratory of Prof. Doug Hanahan at UCSF (2005-2010). Prof. Erez is the former Chair of Pathology at TAU Faculty of Medicine and a current board member of the Metastasis Research Society (MRS) and Vice President of the Israeli Society for Cancer Research (ISCR).
