Gali Prag - PI

Graduated and earned PhD from the Hebrew University. With Prof. Oppenheim studied bacterial genetics and obtained two EMBO fellowships to determine the structures of several chitin degrading enzymes in complex with their native substrates. Gali completed his postdoctoral studies at the NIH with Prof. Hurley, where he determined the first structures of ubiquitin-receptor complexes with ubiquitin and some of the ESCRT complexes. In 2008 he returned to Israel and established a structural-biology and bacterial genetic laboratory in TAU.
