Sheera Adar is the Jacob and Lena Joels Memorial Foundation Senior Lecturer in the Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics
at Hebrew University’s Faculty of Medicine. Dr. Adar’s research focuses on carcinogenic DNA damages and damages induced by cancer
therapies. Her laboratory conducts computational and “wet” experiments to map DNA damages at every position of the human genome in
order to understand how damages lead to mutations and cancer, with emphasis on lung, skin, and ovarian cancer. Her goal is to discover
new markers for cancer risk and identify new targets for therapy.

Dr. Adar received her B.S. in Life Sciences from Tel Aviv University and her M.S. and Ph.D. from the Weizmann Institute of Science. As
a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, Dr. Adar was mentored by Professor Jason Lieb and
Professor Aziz Sancar, Nobel prize winner in 2015. Her findings have been widely published. In 2017, she received the Golda Meir Fellowship
Prize for scientific excellence.
