Prof. Raz Zarivach
I am the head of the Zarivach Laboratory for Structural Biology, as well as chair of the Macromolecular Crystallography Research Centre (MCRC) at BGU.
I worked as a post doctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia, Canada, on the E. coli Type III secretion system. Prior to this, I finished my PhD at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, under the supervision of Prof. Ada Yonath (2009 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry) on the subject of ribosome structures.
