Associate Professor, Department of Nutrition
Case Western Reserve University, USA
Danny Manor completed his undergraduate studies in Biochemistry in 1982 at Tel Aviv University in Israel and received his PhD in Anatomy, Structural Biology and Biophysics from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (NY) in 1989. Dr. Manor held a postodctoral position in the Department of Physics at the City University of New York, where he applied biophysical approaches for the study of visual pigments and GTP-binding proteins.
In 1992, Dr. Manor moved to the Department of Pharmacology at Cornell University in Ithaca (NY) where he studied the role of small GTP-binding proteins in malignant transformation. After receiving a faculty position at Cornells Division of Nutritional Science, his studies diversified to include molecular bases of cancer prevention and vitamin-E biology.
Danny Manor joined the Department of Nutrition in the School of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University as an Associate Professor in 2006. His research work has been funded by the American Cancer Society (ACS), the National Cancer Institute (NCI), and the National Institute of Diabetes & Digestive & Kidney Diseases (NIDDK).
Research team aims to gain molecular-level answers to basic questions that surround the etiology, treatment and prevention of cancer.
