Alon Diament

Alon Diament is a PhD student in the field of Systems and Synthetic Biology at Tel Aviv University. His research focuses on computational biophysical modelling of gene expression. Alon seeks to answer fundamental biological questions related to the 3D organization of genes in genomes, to mechanisms of mRNA translation and to evolution of transcripts and proteins. Using multidisciplinary strategies, he hopes to develop novel computational models that will tackle some of the open challenges in the field such as understanding 3D genome evolution, co-translational protein folding, and ultimately lead to medical applications such as the understanding of human diseases and the development of therapies.
