Coordinator Prof. Naama Brenner

Prof. Naama Brenner

Naama Brenner studied Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. She received a PhD in Theoretical Physics from the Technion in 1996 with a thesis in the field of Quantum Chaos. She then joined the Biophysics research group at NEC Research Institute in Princeton, thus making a sharp change of interest to Life Science. During three years at NEC she was active in the field of Computational Neuroscience with special interest in sensory adaptation and neural coding, multiple time scales and variability of neural responses. In 1999 she joined the group of scientists and engineering who founded InSightec Ltd. She was a part of a team that developed the first generation of "ExAblate", a system that non-invasively ablates tumors under thermal MRI. In 2001 she joined the department of Chemical Engineering at the Technion. In 2008 she initiated, together with other Technion researchers, the Network Biology Research Lab - the first of several centers currently comprising the Lorry I. Lokey Interdisciplinary Center for Life Science and Engineering. Currently she works in various areas of Theoretical Biophysics at the interface between the cell and population levels of organization. Research topics include phenotypic variability in cell populations, cellular adaptive response, cooperative interactions between microorganisms, and dynamics of synaptic populations.
