Yosef Koronyo, MSc, LLB

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

Learn More

Yosef Koronyo, MSc, LLB, 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, Koronyo 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.

Hannah Schubloom, MSc

Administrative Services Associate Email: hannah.schubloom@cshs.org

Learn More

Hannah Schubloom, MSc, received B.A. degrees in Biology and Psychology from the University of Minnesota-Morris. Upon completion, she pursued a M.Sc. in Neuroscience at McGill University in the Woolley-Sakata Lab, where she studied neural underpinnings of female zebra finch song preferences as they relate to pair bond strength. She now supports the Koronyo-Hamaoui Laboratory in an administrative role, assisting with grant applications, tracking financials, organizing events, editing scientific content, and overseeing communications.
