About Us

Dr. Milana Frenkel-Morgenstern Principal Investigator, The Azrieli Faculty of Medicine, Bar-Ilan University, Israel

Dr. Milana Frenkel-Morgenstern's group at the Azrieli Faculty of Medicine, Bar-Ilan University aims to identify unique potential drug targets in cancer cells, also known as “chimeric RNAs”. Her group catalogs these cancer-associated fusion transcripts, thereby analyzing the function of the proteins produced by the transcripts in order to identify those fusion events that are directly related to biochemical cell function.
