Ronit Ilouz, PhD

Bar-Ilan University

ICRF Research Career Development Award Recipient

Ronit Ilouz, PhD, of Bar-Ilan University, recipient of her first ICRF grant for early career scientists, the Research Career Development Award (RCDA), is studying the molecular and cellular mechanisms of protein kinases (intracellular enzymes that regulate cell growth and proliferation) and how they are deregulated in prostate cancer. Utilizing cutting-edge imaging techniques to map protein locations in the cell with high-resolution microscopy, she aims to identify the specific location of these proteins within the cells surrounding the tumor and the cellular partners with which they interact. This should, hopefully, lead to novel treatments for prostate cancer using specific kinase inhibitors, without causing unwanted side effects.
