1. Biography

Lilach was a 3 years Alzheimer’s Society Research Fellow at UCL ION London UK (then 3 years RoseTrees fellow) studying human brain aging. She obtained her B.Sc. in computer science, M.Sc in developmental biology, and her Ph.D. in neurobiology studying RNA regulation in Parkinson’s disease resulting in more than ten first-author papers. Her post-doctoral training was funded by the competitive Marie Curie fellowship and she published a first-author paper in Cell Reports. She now carries out Alzheimer’s studies to investigate the role of specific cells in the disease, by applying cutting-edge machine-learning algorithms to quantify different cells in Alzheimer’s patient’s brain samples. She also maintains international collaborations with laboratories in both Europe and USA.
