Ron obtained his BSc degree in biology from Tel Aviv University. His interest in self-assembly led him to join Prof. Ehud Gazit's lab to pursue an MSc degree in biotechnology at Tel Aviv University. After earning his PhD in chemistry from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, under Prof. Itamar Willner, he pursued postdoctoral studies at Yale University under the guidance of Jonathon Howard and Xiaolei Su. His postdoctoral research was supported by long-term fellowships from the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) and European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO). In 2021, Ron joined Bar-Ilan University's Azrieli Faculty of Medicine. Outside the lab, he enjoys cooking and spending time with his family.
