Karin Norieli, B.Sc.
+972-3-914-3069 Building 6, R. 6.1.
I joined the laboratory of Dr. Michaelevski in October 2016. I am investigating the role of AKT kinase vs allosteric activity on eLTP expression and basal synaptic transmission.
Outside the laboratory my other great passion is the dancing and travelling. I also like to learn new languages. I speak fluent Spanish.
Role of AKT kinase in early phase LTP expression and basal synaptic transmission.
The serine/threonine kinase AKT/PKB plays a fundamental role in a wide variety of neuronal functions, including neuronal cell development, axonal growth, and synaptic plasticity.
I am using combination of genetic and pharmacological manipulations to evaluate kinase and allosteric effect of AKT1 on eLTP expression and basal synaptic transmission.
2016- B.Sc degree in Molecular Biology in Ariel University, Israel.
2010- High school Graduate, specialization in robotics, mathematics and chemistry in "Ohel-Shem" high school, Ramat-Gan.
In 2009 I represented Israel in an international Robotics compition – Robocap Junior, Graz Austria.
