He is also a member of the Center for Visual Science and the Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities Research Center. Dr. Telias obtained his B.Sc. in Medical Sciences and M.Sc. in Medical Neurobiology from the Hadassah Medical School at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and his Ph.D. in Cell & Developmental Biology from the Faculty of Medicine at Tel Aviv University, Israel. As a doctoral student, he pioneered the use of human stem cells in the study of cognitive impairment and autism (Fragile X Syndrome). As a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, he investigated the molecular and cellular mechanisms behind inner retinal remodeling in degenerative blinding diseases.CredentialsEducation2005BMedSc | Israel - the Hebrew University, JerusalemBio-Medical Sciences2008MSc | Israel - the Hebrew University, JerusalemMedical Neurobiology2015PhD | Israel - Tel-Aviv UniversityCell and Developmental Biology -- Co-supervision: Department of Neurobiology – the Weizmann Institute of SciencePost-doctoral Training & Residency2015 - 2021USA - University of California, Berkeley Inner retinal remodeling - Advisor: Prof. Richard H KramerAwards2019ILANIT/FISEB Conference Post-Doc Travel Award2018 - PresentReviewer for Molecular Psychiatry (Nature) and eNeuro (SFN)2016 - PresentReview Editor for Neurogenesis – Frontiers in Neuroscience & Review Editor for Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience2015Travel Award for the International Society for Stem Cell Research Annual Meeting2014Sieratzki Family Appreciation Award for a Publication in Neuroscience, awarded by the Sieratzki Family, the Adams Super Center f20132nd Prize for best study, the annual Residence Day at Lis Maternity Hospital, Tel-Aviv2013TEVA National Network of Excellence Pre-Doctoral Scholarship in Neuroscience (USD 25,000)20121st prize for original research on stem cells, the 4th Annual Young Investigators Meetings of the Israeli Stem Cell Society, Shi20121st prize for outstanding basic research, the annual conference of the Israel Fertility Association, Tel-Aviv2011Excellence Award for Research in Developmental Biology in Memory of Prof. Boaz Moav, Switzerland Institute for Developmental BioVIEW ALL expand_morePublicationsJournal Articles2021Telias M, Ben-Yosef D.
