Songlin Li, PhD

Project Scientist Email: songlin.li@cshs.org

Learn More
Li's research interest is in the central nervous system (CNS) repair and regeneration in Alzheimer’s disease (AD), in particular the synaptic alterations following cellular and molecular immunotherapy in AD, employing both in vitro and in vivo strategies. Before joining the Koronyo-Hamaoui Laboratory, Li obtained his PhD in Neuroscience at Sun Yet-sen University of Medical Sciences in China. He received his postdoctoral training in Psychology, Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences under Margaret Fahnestock, PhD, and Ronald J. Racine, PhD, at McMaster University in Canada. Li then worked with Stanley Thomas Carmichael, MD, PhD, and was an assistant researcher in the Department of Neurology, University of California, Los Angeles, after competing his American Heart Association (AHA) postdoctoral fellowship. Li was awarded a Scientist Development Grant from the AHA National Center, studying molecular mechanisms of axonal sprouting and recovery from stroke. Li’s research backgrounds led to an intellectual progression from basic CNS biology to the applied studies of neural repair in AD.

Sheyn completed her Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Faculty of Medicine. She worked for two years as a research assistant in a pharmaceutics lab at the Hebrew University Pharmacy School and for a year in the Heart Institute at the Hadassah University Hospital, Jerusalem. After graduation from pharmacy school, Sheyn worked as a community pharmacist for 7 years. She has been involved in neuropathological assessments as well as cognitive and behavioral testing following immune- modulation therapies in transgenic mouse models of disease.

Dieu-Trang (Sandrine) Fuchs, MSc

Research Associate Email: dieutrang.fuchs@cshs.org

Hart is completing a pre-medical certificate at University of California, Los Angeles, and he received his bachelor’s degree in Linguistics from University of California, Riverside. As an intern in the Koronyo-Hamaoui Laboratory, he is involved in research in Alzheimer's Disease and leukocyte signaling.

Tania Torbati

Research Intern Email: tania.torbati@cshs.org

Learn More
Torbati is an undergraduate student studying as a Psychobiology major at the University of California, Los Angeles. She currently conducts her internship in the Koronyo-Hamaoui Laboratory where she participates in Alzheimer's disease research.

Yosef Koronyo, MSc, LLB

Research Associate - Key Collaborator Email: yosef.koronyo@cshs.org

Learn More
Koronyo received his Bachelor of Science in Natural Sciences and his Master of Science in Molecular Microbiology and Biotechnology at Tel-Aviv University, Israel. He was a researcher at Wise Faculty of Life Sciences, Tel-Aviv University. In parallel with his PhD studies in plant genetic engineering, he studied law at Tel-Aviv University, eventually shifting completely into law studies and becoming a member of the Israeli bar. During the past six years, Yosef has shifted back to biological research. He developed exclusive noninvasive imaging approaches for ex vivo and in vivo monitoring of pathological processes and immune cell infiltration in the retina of rodent models of neurodegenerative disorders.
