  • PhD Student in (Microbiology)
    February 2005 --- May 2009

    I advanced my knowledge through scientific studies in Israel, Haifa University, Deptartment of Plant Pathology and, Richovot Microbiology, Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Quality Sciences, the Hebrew University.

    During PhD period my research work has been focused on the production of medicinally relevant bio-molecules, fungal enzymes biosynthesis, upstream/downstream, purification, biogenic analysis and characterization of the properties of pure protein.
