Prof. Michal Neeman investigates angiogenesis – blood vessel formation and growth. She has developed a number of novel methods for imaging the process, most particularly in ovarian cancer, in which tumor growth often relies on new blood vessels. After earning a Ph.D. in chemistry from the Weizmann Institute, Neeman spent three years at Los Alamos National Laboratory before returning to the Institute in 1991. A member of the Board of Trustees of the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and chair of its 2003 Education Committee, she was also elected in 2008 as a Council Member of the Society for Molecular Imaging. In 2009, she was appointed Dean of the Institute’s Faculty of Biology and Director of the Clore Center for Biological Physics. Prof. Neeman is the incumbent of the Helen and Morris Mauerberger Chair in Biological Sciences.
