Dr. Lital Sever

Lital completed her PhD studies in Biology at the University of Waterloo, Canada, and is currently pursuing her postdoctoral research at the Weizmann Institute of Science, in the field of Immunology. Her research focuses on the cellular pathways which dictate the development, survival and function of B cells in particular plasma cells which secrete antibodies in response to a pathogen. By better understanding the molecular mechanisms that regulate the survival and function of plasma cells, Lital hopes to uncover novel therapeutic targets and new diagnostic tools for autoimmune diseases and hematological malignancies such as multiple myeloma.
