Emmanuel Levy joins the Molecular and Cell Biology Department

Emmanuel Levy studied computer science and biology, graduating in 2004 from the Université Paris VII, with a specialization in genome analysis and molecular modeling. In 2008, he obtained a PhD on the classification, evolution and assembly of protein complexes at Cambridge University. From 2008 to 2012, he completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Université de Montréal, specializing in proteomics and yeast genetics. In 2012, Emmanuel Levy joined the Department of Chemical and Structural Biology at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, as Associate Professor.

Emmanuel Levy's work has been recognized by prestigious awards and numerous funding grants. In 2015, he received the Marie Curie Reintegration Award and the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) Award. He was awarded the Krill Prize in 2018 and the Blavatnik Prize in 2022. His work is supported by various competitive international grants, including an HFSP research grant, and he recently received an ERC Consolidator grant.

The central question of Emmanuel Levy's research team is to understand how macromolecules assemble and organize themselves in living systems. His laboratory combines computational and experimental methods in genomics, proteomics, structural, cellular and systems biology to determine how proteins interact, self-assemble and compartmentalize in cells, in order to provide a global picture of the evolution of these mechanisms across species.

In March 2024, Emmanuel Levy and his team joined the Biology Section's Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology as Full Professor.
