Yoav Soen

Department of Biological Chemistry; Weizmann Institute of Science

Soen is a biophysicist interested in how robust organisms can be sufficiently plastic to cope with new problems, and how this plasticity might contribute to bridging ecological and evolutionary processes.

Profile continued

Yoav was formally trained in Electrical Engineering and Physics (Technion, Israel), and then conducted a postdoctoral Study in Biochemistry (Stanford University). On 2006, Yoav established a research lab in the Weizmann Institute of Science, Department of Biological Chemistry.

His group takes an experimental approach for studying how developing flies cope with unfamiliar scenarios of stress, the underlying epigenetic and symbiotic mechanisms of response, the trans-generational implications of these events and how they may bridge ecological and evolutionary processes.
