Summary

Dr. Benhalevy’s interests lie in how cellular pathways are affected by the spatial organization of organelles and molecules. He is studying the mechanisms that rely on RNA localization and RNA-protein interactions.

Research Statement

Intracellular compartmentalization is highly regulated and conserved. I am interested in how cellular pathways are affected by the spatial organization of organelles and molecules. Specifically, I study mechanisms that rely on RNA localization and RNA-protein interactions.
