Yosef Buganim

Yosef Buganim received undergraduate degrees from Bar-Ilan University and a Ph.D. from the Weizmann Institute of Science. As a postdoctoral fellow at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research at MIT, he used single-cell technologies and bioinformatic approaches to shed light on the molecular mechanisms that underlie the reprogramming of somatic cells to iPSCs. Currently the leader of his own laboratory at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Buganim uses somatic cell conversion models to identify and investigate the elements that facilitate safe and complete nuclear reprogramming.
