OHBM 2023- Aviv Mezer

Aviv Mezer is an Associate Professor at the Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences (ELSC) at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel.  

Professor Mezer did his graduate and undergraduate studies in the field of biochemistry at Tel-Aviv University, Israel. After completing his undergraduate and graduate studies at Tel Aviv University, Professor Mezer moved to Stanford and worked with Prof. Brian Wandell as a postdoctoral scholar and research associate.

Research in Mezer’s lab is focused on mapping human brain structures during normal development and aging. In addition, it is focused on developing new approaches to characterize the structural changes associated with neurological disorders. Mezer’s main research tool is in-vivo quantitative magnetic resonance imaging – qMRI. The Mezer lab is developing tools to biophysically explain the brain’s MRI signals at different levels and resolutions: from molecular local sources through cellular organization to the mapping of networks across the entire brain.
