Yuval Dor is a professor of biology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where his lab studies postnatal tissue dynamics: the molecular mechanisms by which cells regenerate and die. Much of his work focuses on pancreatic beta-cells and diabetes, as well as pancreatic cancer. In recent years he has developed a method to study cell death in humans, using methylation signatures of cell-free circulating DNA. This new type of liquid biopsy opens a minimally-invasive window into tissue dynamics in health and in pathologies including cancer, infection, and neurodegeneration.
