      Professor Isaiah T. (Shy) Arkin is the Arthur Lejwa Professor of Structural Biochemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and the former Vice-President for Research and Development at the University.

      He heads a team of researchers who investigate the structural biology of membrane proteins in important human pathogens. Since these proteins are essential elements of the virus, they present an important target for medicinal drug research.

      Professor Arkin’s research has succeeded in shedding new light on the inner workings of the flu virus, and in particular how the virus avoids anti-viral therapy. His integrative and multi-disciplinary approaches are dominant in his work, and his fruitful interaction with biology, chemistry, physics, and medicine has enabled great strides in advancing the understanding of proteins and related fields.

      Professor Arkin has studied at the Faculty of Agriculture at the Hebrew University and the Faculty of Life Sciences at Tel Aviv University, and he received his doctorate in Cell Biology from Yale University. He is the recipient of an Alon Fellowship, the Klachky Prize for the Advancement of the Frontiers of Science, and an award for excellence in teaching.
