Prof. Kobi Rosenblum
Professor of molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying learning and memory, University of Haifa, Israel; PhD in neurobiology, post-doctoral research with Prof T.V.P. Bliss, FRS at NIMR, London, with more than two decades of experience in applied neuroscience research and development. Prof. Rosenblum is the inventor of ProteKt Therapeutics.
Prof. Kobi Rosenblum is the head of the laboratory for research of molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying learning and memory. The lab is affiliated to the Sagol Department of Neurobiology, University of Haifa, Israel. Prof. Rosenblum’s research aim is to understand how simple sensory information is encoded, consolidated and maintained in the cortex and elucidate the biological mechanisms underlying memory formation and consolidation in the mammalian brain.
The research in Prof. Rosenblum’s lab is inherently multi-disciplinary, and combines research approaches from the field of biology, as well as psychology, integrating data ranging from the molecular to whole animal level. Following recent results regarding the role of translation regulation in normal learning processes, the lab tests the hypothesis that malfunction of similar biochemical pathways underlies cognitive dysfunction and sporadic Alzheimer’s disease.
