Zvulun Elazar obtained his Ph.D. at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel . Currently he is the Harold Korda Professor at the Department of Biological Chemistry of the Weizmann Institute of Science where he studies different mechanistic aspects of autophagy in yeast and mammalian systems. He is particularly interested in the role of the Atg8s, unique ubiquitin-like proteins that are part of the core autophagic machinery. This family facilitates both autophagosome formation and selective cargo recruitment into these organelles. The current focus of his lab is on the identification of factors that regulate these processes and are defective in pathophysiological conditions such as neurodegeneration and cancer.
