Peri Noori, MSc

Research Consultants


Research Interests

​The complex relationship between cells and other biological structures has driven Peri to expand her knowledge of the molecules and methods for discovering and analyzing them, which create the world around her to understand biological topics in greater depth. It is a big challenge to optimize and develop new method, which need analytical and evaluative skills.
