Shamgar Ben-Eliyahu, Ph.D.

I am a neuroscientist specializing in Psycho-Neuro-Immunology (PNI). The field of PNI studies interactions between the central nervous system (CNS), the endocrine system, and the immune system. Bidirectional influences between these systems affect susceptibility to diseases, cognition, mood, and behavior. Within the realm of PNI, my main research interests are the impacts of surgery and stress (and their associated bioactive substances) on cell-mediated immunity (specifically NK cells) and on resistance to tumor metastasis and tumor progression.

 

 

My studies are conducted using animal models, human subjects and patients, and aim at understanding underlying mechanisms in view of clinical implications. Among current and future research plans are clinical studies of prophylactic measures against the immunosuppressive and metastasis-promoting effects of surgery in cancer patients. These studies are based, among other things, on findings from our ongoing animal and human studies.
