Chaim Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer, Israel

Luba Trakhtenbrot, PhD is the head of Molecular Cytogenetics Lab. in the Cancer Research Centre of Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer, in Israel. Her lab is the major referral laboratory in Israel (adults and children) and use state-of the art molecular cytogenetics techniques (interphase FISH, SKY and combined morphological and FISH analyses) for clinical and research purposed. She has been working in animal and plant cytogenetics from 1969, for last 25 years in cancer cytogenetics and she is author of more than 60 papers in this field.
