Benyamin Rosental is Assistant Professor at the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Ben Gurion University of the Negev. He received is PhD in Immunology in 2013. His laboratory research is focusing on tissue acceptance by the immune system, and stem cell transplantation. Among their projects, is modulating the immune system in blood-forming stem cell transplantation (bone marrow transplantation), to make it a safer process. Additionally, he and his team are looking for the immune system’s “tipping point” between tissue regeneration and inflammatory destruction. While most of the work in the laboratory is focusing on improving transplantation and modulating the immune system in medical settings, they also translate their research to other fields of stem cells and immunity for ecological questions.
