Dr. Zippora (Zippi) Brownstein

Research Associate

Zippi received her Bachelor’s degree in Communication Disorders at Tel Aviv University and her Master’s degree in Genetics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Her graduate studies, as well as her post-doctoral training were completed in genetics, in our laboratory, where she worked on identifying and characterizing genes involved in deafness in the Jewish population. Today, Zippi continues her work in our lab as a Research Associate, combining experimental and computational techniques in order to detect all the ‘deafness genes’ in the Jewish population and reach a comprehensive view of the roles these genes play in hearing and deafness.
