Chaya KalcheimDepartment of Medical Neurobiology, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Israel F1000 Faculty Member (since 12 June 2001)
Department of Medical Neurobiology, IMRIC and ELSC, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel.
She performed her undergraduate studies in Biology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and then moved to the Weizmann Institute of Science at Rehovot where she received her PhD in 1984 in Neurobiology.
We are currently investigating cellular and molecular mechanisms controlling the development of the nervous and skeletal systems during embryogenesis. We are using the Chicken (Gallus gallus) and Quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica) embryos as model organisms.
Developmental Neurobiology: Mechanisms underlying the onset and progression of neural crest migration; control of cell cycle, specification and differentiation of neural crest and neural tube progenitors.
Development of the skeletal system: The molecular basis of intrasomitic diversification in relation to vertebral development. Molecular basis of the multiwave nature of myotome formation. Mechanisms of lineage segregation of dermomyotome progenitors into skeletal versus smooth muscle, dermis and endothelium.
