Erez Podoly ‘08 was introduced to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HU) as a young man. “I remember a beautiful, black and white photo of my mom, next to the National Library of Israel and her stories about student life on HU’s Givat Ram campus and in Jerusalem.” His mother’s experiences left a big impression on him, and Erez hoped one day he too would attend HU and have his own stories to tell.

Erez more than fulfilled those plans by receiving his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees at HU. A gifted student, Erez received several awards and scholarships including the Kaye Innovation Prize and the Israeli Ministry of Science Eshkol Ph.D. fellowship. While working on his Ph.D., Erez served as the Assistant Executive Director of BioJerusalem, an initiative of the Jerusalem Development Authority where he helped bring biotech opportunities to the city.

After receiving his Ph.D., Erez began a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University with Nobel Laureate and HU Visiting Professor Roger Kornberg. During his academic career, Erez co-authored many peer-reviewed papers and book chapters.

He is an experienced entrepreneur who integrates the lessons he learned at HU into everything he works on. He is the founder and former CEO of ArcheroMetric and his current venture is Slive Inc., a start-up impacting healthcare through technologies that monitor signals of diseases and other physiological conditions.

Erez believes HU played a key role in his entrepreneurial life – it expanded his knowledge base and offered different perspectives. He said, “Today, I am able to turn ideas into start-ups and contribute to shaping our future society.”

Erez is excited to give back to HU as the chair of the HU Alumni Association’s Pacific Northwest Region. He is thrilled to support the university through volunteerism and to build and strengthen the alumni community in the area.
