Roy BECK- BARAI
Professeur assistant | Israël | Tel Aviv University
Roy BECK completed his B.Sc. degree in physics and computer science and has a PhD in low-temperature solid-state physics from the Tel Aviv University, Israel. Seeking a way to combine physics with biology and medicine, he completed a four-year post-graduate fellowship in biophysics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. In 2010, Dr. Beck opened an experimental interdisciplinary laboratory for biophysics. His research is focused on the biophysical understanding of the forces and interactions governing the self-assembly of biomolecules to functional nanoscopic structures including the organization principles of cytoskeleton proteins within the neuronal system, intrinsically disordered proteins, membranes and nano-complexes of lipids and proteins. The research combines various biochemical techniques to isolate and express desired products and advance microscopic and biophysical techniques. Along with his scientific achievements, Dr. Beck is promoting science and education amongst underprivileged youth, and to religious scholars. Since 2012, Dr. Beck has been serving as the Vice-Chair of the interim user executive committee of the SESAME project, a collaborative multinational venture that will make synchrotron radiation science available to the Middle East.
