Lab Research Areas

The laboratory investigates how liver cells program the expression of different genes in response to altered nutrition, how these programs are derailed in disease, and how we can re-establish them to restore health.

Scholar Profile

Dr. Goldstein joins the Institute of Biochemistry, Food Science and Nutrition, part of the Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment at the Hebrew University. For his postdoctoral work at the prestigious National Institutes of Health (NIH), he received the National Institutes of Health Fellows Award for Research Excellence.

Dr. Goldstein’s lifelong interest is in how the human body manages to orchestrate the myriad of functions needed for life as well as to respond and adapt to its changing environment. His long-term goal is to produce a meaningful impact on people’s health by providing scientific insights into liver biology, nutrition and gene regulation.

He feels that as a product of Israel’s scientific training programs, he has a responsibility to continue its stellar legacy. As a teacher, he recognizes that most students go into the field because they realize the beauty of science. He tries to constantly remind them of this simple fact and help them graduate with that same passion for science combined with the tools they need to discover more scientific marvels.
