Yitzhak Reizel, PhD

Technion, Israel Institute of Technology

ICRF Research Career Development Award Recipient

Yitzhak Reizel, PhD is the recipient of an ICRF Research Career Development Award (RCDA) at the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology. During the development of an organism, each organ or cell type undergoes a specific program that regulates the expression of genes required for the growth and maintenance of tissue. Pioneer factors are a group of proteins that trigger the programs for organ-specific development. The goal of Dr. Reizel’s research is to determine whether the principles underlying normal organ creation apply during initiation and progression of cancer, by focusing on the pioneer factor called FoxA1, which activates both normal development and tumor formation. His research should identify new principles that regulate gene expression in cancer cells and may lead to the development of methods for therapeutics and diagnosis.
