We strongly believe that the quality of someone’s research is not defined by their religion, their gender, the color of their skin, their choice of body art, the clothes they wear and that a strong lab needs a heterogeneous population of students that will lead to fruitful thinking group having different ideas and scientific approaches.
״עדיף כישלון מפואר מחלומות במגירה״
We believe in pursuing new ideas, in multidisciplinary science, in working together as a team. We measure our impact by the patient lives we improve, the phenomena we explore, the technologies we develop, and the scientific careers we cultivate.
As a Group We Strive
To be human beings
To be fearless and curious
To be collaborative and generous with our time and resources
To pursue science that is excellent, rigorous, and true
To have fun

OUR TRAINING PHILOSHOPHY
Project decisions are made collectively by the trainee and Dr. Zinger. We embrace a “small focus groups reporting structure” such that all trainees serve as mentors, however our trainees are divided to small focus groups to encourage brain storming and data sharing.
Supplemental mentorship is provided by Dr. Lifhsitz, who brings 17+ years of research and science coaching experience to the team.
