    Livnat Jerby

    Assistant Professor of Genetics

    BioLivnat Jerby is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Genetics at Stanford University. Her research focuses on multicellular circuits as a disease driver and therapeutic avenue, aiming to develop tissue remodeling and immunomodulating interventions for disease treatment and prevention. As a postdoctoral fellow in Aviv Regev's lab at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, she identified novel regulators of T cell exclusion and dysfunction. Her work identified new mechanisms controlling cellular and tissue immunogenicity and demonstrated the potential of epigenetic reprogramming as a therapeutic modality to overcome immunotherapy resistance in cancer. Dr. Jerby holds a B.Sc. in Computer Science and Biology and obtained her PhD in 2016 from Tel Aviv University, where she worked with Prof. Eytan Ruppin, studying non-linear genetic interactions. Bringing together latest advances in genetic engineering, single-cell genomics, imaging, and machine learning, her laboratory develops systems for studying cellular circuits at greater scale, resolution, and depth, and identify new ways to target and engineer endogenous and synthetic immune circuits.
