PROFESSOR YANIV ELKOUBY is a professor at the School of Medicine at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Prof Elkouby established the zebrafish ovary as a new model system to study the cellular mechanisms of ovary development and early egg production. His research employs a multidisciplinary approach to the developing ovary, and he pioneered the view of egg production by advanced quantitative and live microscopy of whole ovaries. His research resulted in several breakthroughs that contributed to our understanding of the earliest stages of egg production, generating knowledge that is directly relevant to human reproduction. He has won numerous grants and awards, including the ZCAI Prize for Discovery in Medical Research, HUJI President and Rector Awards for Outstanding Publications, an ERC Consolidator grant, and the EMBO Young Investigator Award.
