Ehud Herbst, PhD

Weizmann Institute of Science

ICRF Postdoctoral Fellowship Recipient

Ehud Herbst, PhD is the recipient of an ICRF Postdoctoral Fellowship in the laboratory of Professor Sorek at the Weizmann Institute of Science. Like humans, bacteria have immune systems that enable them to combat infecting viruses. It was recently discovered that two compounds that have been in use for decades as frontline cancer therapies are produced by bacteria as part of their own anti-viral defense pathways. Dr. Herbst’s research focuses on how molecules that microbes make to fight their enemies can be put to use as novel therapies for cancer.
