Research Interests

My lab is working extensively for the last three decades in the field of immunodermatology . During these years, the laboratory developed a number of humanized mouse models which received worldwide publicity and are used today as ideal models of pre-clinical trials for testing the efficacy of new drugs.

The laboratory provides various scientific services to domestic and international companies such as Teva, Bioline, abbott , Lee pharm (Hong Kong, China), Celgene (USA) and more. During the last decade the laboratory has succeeded in developing humanized mouse models for two skin autoimmune diseases: psoriasis and alopecia areata( AA).
