Tal Iram

Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute Interdisciplinary Scholar
Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Department of Neurology & Neurological Sciences

Dr. Iram studies the aging brain cerebrospinal fluid, and specifically how cerebrospinal fluid transfusions from young mice might reverse aging-related phenotypes in old mice.

Dr. Iram completed her PhD studies in neuroscience in the Sagol School of Neuroscience in Tel Aviv University. Her PhD, which was a joint project between Dr. Dan Frenkel in Tel Aviv University and Dr. Joseph El Khoury in Harvard Medical School, uncovered new mechanisms to clear debris from the brain in Alzheimer’s disease. Today, Dr. Iram is a post-doctorate fellow in the lab of Prof. Tony Wyss-Coray in the Department of Neurology where she studies the aging brain cerebrospinal fluid, and specifically how cerebrospinal fluid transfusions from young mice might reverse aging-related phenotypes in old mice. She is collaborating with the lab of Dr. Sergiu Pasca in the department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences to study the effects of cerebrospinal fluid proteins on human brain organoid development.
