Junior Research Fellow
Sir William Dunn School of Pathology

College position:

Dr. Shaked Ashkenazi has recently moved to Oxford with the support of the Royal Society - International Newton Fellowship and she is now a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Prof. Matthew Freeman in Sir William Dunn School of Pathology. She obtained her Ph.D. from the Weizmann Institute of Science, where she became interested in the molecular regulation of Inflammation. Particularly, her research focuses on how proteins interact with one another to execute immune responses, as well as cell death decisions.Understanding the molecular mechanisms governing inflammation will lead to understanding of the pathologies resulting from them, and as a result, to the development of new targeted therapies.
